Banana Peels: A Promising Substrate for the Coproduction of Pectinase and Xylanase from Aspergillus fumigatus MS16

availability of the substrates remains a decisive factor. Banana peels (BP) is a waste LC substrate that is generated by the fruit that remains available throughout the year in Pakistan and, hence, can be investigated for its possible application as a promising LC substrate. Banana is one of the most popular fruit in the world owing to its nutritional value, hygiene, cost-effectiveness, and its digestibility. In South Asia, it is the leading fruit, grown over a hundred thousand hectares of cultivated land

Morpho-molecular characterization of Colombian and Brazilian populations of Rotylenchulus associated with Musa spp

Colombia is the fourth largest global producer of plantain (Musa spp.) after Uganda, Cameroon, and Ghana, with a production of 3,575,706 t in 2017. Recently, the production of plantain has increased in Colombia by 11% since 2012 with a current yield of 8.1 t ha−1 (FAO, 2018). Regional variation in yield of both banana and plantain exists, ranging from 35.9 t ha−1 yr−1 (Tolima municipality) to 107.8 t ha−1 yr−1 (Valle del Cauca) and from 274.2 t ha−1 yr−1 (Meta) to 542.1 t ha−1 yr−1 (Arauca) for

Molecular approach to confirm traditional identification of Radopholus similis sampled in Tanzania

Banana (Musa spp. L.) is a key food crop in rural and urban areas of the humid tropics, with an annual global production of up to 100mn tons (FAO, 2015). In East Africa, banana is widely consumed and provides approximately 10% of the calorific intake for more than 70mn people (Kilimo Trust, 2012). In Tanzania, in particular, it is a staple food and cash crop for more than 30% of the total population (Nkuba, 2007). Plant-parasitic nematodes (PPN) are the principal pests of banana in Tanzania

Morphological and Molecular Identification of Longidorus euonymus and Helicotylenchus multicinctus from the Rhizosphere of Grapevine and Banana in Greece

multicinctus was detected infecting banana roots from an outdoor crop in Tertsa, Crete. For both species, morphometrics and molecular data of Greek populations were provided, resulting in the first integrative identification of both nematode species based on morphometric and molecular markers, confirming the occurrence of these two nematodes in Greece as had been stated in earlier reports.

Evaluation of Pochonia chlamydosporia and Purpureocillium lilacinum for Suppression of Meloidogyne enterolobii on Tomato and Banana

control efficacy in vitro. In experiments in which 10,000 nematode eggs were inoculated per plant, reductions in the number of eggs after 12 months were seen in three of four treatments in banana plants, reaching 34% for P.chlamydosporia var. catenulata. No significant reductions were seen in tomato plants after 3 mon. In another experiment with tomato plants using either P. chlamydosporia var. catenulata or P. lilacinum, the number of eggs was reduced by 34% and 44%, respectively

A Draft Genome Sequence of the Burrowing Nematode Radopholus similis

. Starting from the free-living nematode C. elegans to the recently published genome of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne graminicola (Somvanshi et al., 2018), nematode genomes and transcriptomes are being heavily explored to understand the underlying complexities that distinguishes a parasitic nematode from their free-living counterparts. The burrowing nematode Radopholus similis is a devastating pathogen of banana (Musa spp.), Citrus spp., anthurium, black pepper, and numerous other economically

Genome Announcement: The Draft Genomes of Two Radopholus similis populations from Costa Rica

The migratory endoparasite, Radopholus similis, is a pest to over 250 plant species, including economically important crops such as banana and citrus (Haegeman et al., 2010). Damage caused by R. similis feeding on roots can lead to secondary infections by fungi and bacteria, eventually leading to root collapse and in some instances, as with banana, plant toppling (Haegeman et al., 2010). With a wide geographical distribution including North and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia

An integrative approach to the study of Helicotylenchus (Nematoda: Hoplolaimidae) Colombian and Brazilian populations associated with Musa crops

Helicotylenchus species are ecto and semiendoparasitic nematode, with worldwide distribution and with great importance in crops of Musa spp., as it causes the highest losses of production and yield after Radopholus similis, Pratylenchus spp., and Meloidogyne spp. (Araya and De Waele, 2004; Karakas, 2007; Singh et al., 2013; Ravichandra, 2014). The most limiting Helicotylenchus species in banana and plantain crops around the world are H. multicinctus (Golden, 1956), H. dihystera (Sher, 1961
