Summary:

Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense tropical race 4 (FocTR4) is the causal agent of Fusarium wilt of banana (Panama disease), which was the one of the most serious threats to banana production. Banana is the most important food crop in the world after rice, wheat and maize. In many developing countries such as Rwanda, Uganda, sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and Malaysia, banana production plays a major role in nutrition and economy. In Malaysia, banana is the second most important fruit crops after durian. The major producing states are Johor, Sabah, and Sarawak which occupy about 31,300 hectares. However, banana production in Malaysia has significantly decreased because of the increasing threat of diseases, causing substantial yield losses. Banana is vulnerable to many diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, viruses and nematodes.
