Spray Copper oxychloride or Zineb with gas oil or mobile oil or white oil. When a cross-section is cut, the discolouration appears in a circular pattern around the centre of the rhizome where the infection concentrates due to the arrangement of the vessels. In summer, eggs hatch in about eight days Nymph and adult infest leaves, pseudostem and fruits. TNAU has developed devices that exploit the wandering behaviour of the insects and help in timely detection of insects in stored produce leading to timely control. Adult : Small to medium sized aphids, shiny, reddish to dark brown or almost black. The efficiency of the traps depends on their numbers and frequency of trapping.

The banana plant, Musa paradisiaca, is the world's largest herbaceous perennial plant and belongs to the family Musaceae.It is grown for it's fleshy, curved banana fruit. Larval tunnels may run for the entire length of fallen pseudostems. Scales cannot fly; therefore they do not readily infest plants as do most other insects. The disease is soil borne and the fungus enters the roots through the fine laterals. Newly emerged weevils are red brown, turning almost black after a few days. The sets should be soaked for a few seconds in 550 ml DBCP plus 40 litres of clay for sets disinfection. The central core of the pseudostem is used as a vegetable. The nematode enters the roots as well as corms and causes usually induce reddish brown cortical lesions which are characteristic feature of the disease. Use clean planting material â This can be done by selecting vigourous healthy planting material, Hot water treatment of corms at 52 to 55Â°C for 15 to 27 minutes, Suckers should be pruned periodically and infested pseudostems must be removed from the field and destroyed.Â, Crop rotation with non host crops like paddy and sugarcane, Ensure proper fertilization and free from weeds at all times, Use mulch away from the banana stool leaving a clear ring about 60 cm from the base of the stool to keep the roots growing towards the surface and to avoid moist conditions near the stool, which will attract banana weevils, Do not take regular crop in the same field to avoid initial infestation, Removal of pseudo stems below ground level, Avoid growing Robusta, Karpooruvally, Malbhog, Champa and Adukkar, Grow less susceptible varieties like Poovan, Kadali, Kunnan, Poomkalli.

Heavily infested plants appear unhealthy and produce little new growth. Steinerma and Heterorhabditis sp of nematodes attack both adult and grubs in the field. The white grub and adult feeds on the living roots and later adults feeds on shrubs and the trees like neem, khejri etc. Natural enemies - Predatory ants such as the bigheaded ant (Pheidole megacephala) and Tetramorium sppÂ feed the eggs, grubs and pupae of weevils. Instead of Monoctophos the suckers may be dipped in clay slurry and sprinkled with Carbofuran granules at 40g/corm, Soil drenching of Carbendazim 0.2 per cent solution alternated with Propiconozole 0.1% around the pseudostem at bimonthly intervals starting from five months after planting, Application of urea + sugarcane trash (250g/pit) followed by lime (1Kg/pit) and neem cake (1-2Kg/pit), Application of neem cake @ 250 Kg/ha was most effecgtive in controlling Fusarium wilt in Rasthali cultivar. Adult - Grey coloured with dark spots on the pinkish hind wings. The infection, which occurs in perianth, spreads to fingers causing blackening of the skin, shrinkage and folding of the tissues. Checking of bunches, reduction in total weight and size of fruits are also encountered as a result of heavy infestation. They are active at night. Many students always searches about TNAU study material and TNAU agriculture notes but they didn't get it because of some misleading sites. The lesioning of primary roots together with girdling and death of anchoring roots leads the plant prone to ‘tip over’ under wind pressure. If the scales are not controlled, leaves will drop prematurely, sometimes killing portions of twigs and branches. These populations are generally covered in a heavy coating of white, curly 'wax' and a sugary secretion that is produced by the whitefly immatures. These patches can be used to distinguish from the smaller males of the banana flower thrips. Young infested suckers often wither and fail to develop. Use mechanical barriers in the field. A. Pests of National Signifi cance ... Banana and plantains are grown in about 120 countries. Dependent on the temperature, the babies will hatch in anything from 5 to 21 days. Yellow and purplish spots in the sub marginal areas. Application of over 100 g or neem oil was phytotoxic (harmful to plants) and uneconomical. Caterpillar scraping the chlorophyll content and windowing in unfurled leaves. Then they bore into the pseudostem base and rhizome/corm, but also into the base of suckers and into roots. Pests and diseases that affect the banana industry are listed below. The development of feeder roots is affected in case of high population of nematodes in the soil. Worldwide, banana production is affected by numerous diseases and pests. per pit at planting. MApps C-DAC Hyderabad. Microconidia are abundant, mostly non-septate, ellipsoidal to cylindrical, slightly curved or straight, 5-12 x 2.3-3.5 Âµm occurring in false headsÂ from short monophialides. Hind wings - white having a brown patch along the margin. Amblypelta nitida Stål, the fruitspotting bug, and Amblypelta lutescens lutescens (Distant), the banana spotting bug, are major pests of tropical fruit in Queensland (Waite, 1990). Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The beetles feed on the young leaves and skin of young fruits. Remove infected plants immediately. Pupa: Keep the longitudinal split banana traps @ 100/ha. They have six segmented antennae and prominent dark veins Here are the most common: Nematodes – Nematodes are a common banana plant pest.

Severe attack dimethoate, methyl demeton, or phosphamidon may be sprayed around the collar region. When the true stem and peduncle are tunnelled after flowering, the fruits do not develop properly, presenting a dehydrated condition with premature ripening of the bunch itself. The spread of the disease is by air-borne conidia and numerous insects which frequently visit banana flowers also spread the diseaseÂ, The disease is favoured by high atmospheric temperature and humidity, wounds and brusies caused in the fruit and susceptibility of the variety, Practice crop rotation with paddy or sugarcane, Keep the field free of weeds and provide good drainage, Fruit should be free from infection and as possible before it is transported, stored and ripened.
