Banana Bunchy Top Virus is one of the most devastating diseases found in bananas and was introduced into Australia in 1915. Bunchy Top virus is found in a relatively small area of Australia and the Banana Bunchy Top project aims to reduce its incidence and prevent it from spreading outside of the known infection zones. The disease was a real problem to the Sunshine coast banana growers in the 30’s and 40’s and it still persists and threatens the remaining growers today.
Barry’s presentation will be about the virus, how it is spread, what to look out for and how to control it. He will also talk about growing banana plants in general and can answer questions about growing banana plants.
