BBW Yellow pus

Banana bacterial wilt(BBW) disease is spreading in some districts of Uganda. Farmers in the districts of Bushenyi, Mbarara and Masaka which are leading producers of bananas in the country, are scared by the out-break. BBW had destroyed 90% of bananas in Uganda. [ATTACH=full]335712[/ATTACH]

The transmission of the disease is through farm tools (pangas, hoes, knives, and de-leafers) used by farmers as well as traders, livestock, insects, birds and bats that feed on sap from injured banana plants.

Treatment *Destroy the sick plants by chopping them, then sun-dry them. Also, make sure you use clean suckers when planting. Disinfect your farm tools before using them. *Stop sharing farm tools. Hoes should not be used in the garden until the banana wilt disease is cleared.
