The Black Sigatoka disease continues to affect plantain production, resulting in skyrocketing prices on the market. Chief Executive Officer of the National Agriculture Research and Extension Institute, Dr. Oudho Homenauth says the onus is now on farmers to ensure proper farm sanitation.

He stressed that chemicals alone cannot correct the situation, and a farmers’ field school has been set up to demonstrate the correct farming techniques and treatment options. Dr. Homenauth noted that NAREI is making every effort to boost the quality of plantain crops.
