Together, we can prevent the spread of TR4
Investments in agriculture, including banana sector innovation, are crucial to increase the capacity for agricultural productivity, while sustainable food production systems are necessary in achieving #ZeroHunger. With a general public audience in mind, the brochure 'Together, we can prevent the spread of TR4' seeks to explain why bananas and plantains are essential crops around the world for both their economic importance and deep cultural roots. It also highlights the main ways to combat the spread of Tropical race 4 (TR4) which causes the disease Banana Fusarium Wilt (Banana FW).
