Abstract

Ten Musa genotypes which were accepted by the International Musa Testing Programme (IMTP) to be resistant or moderately resistant to Fusarium wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense, and three Fusarium wilt susceptible cultivars, were evaluated on their resistance to Radopholus similis and Pratylenchus coffeae and their nematode host plant response compared with the susceptible cultivar 'Grande Naine'. In vitro propagated plantlets were transferred to the greenhouse in loamy sand in pots and inoculated with approximately 1000 nematodes at 4 weeks after planting. Reproduction of R. similis and P. coffeae in the roots was determined at respectively 8 and 10 weeks after inoculation. The 'Pisang Jari Buaya' accessions ITC 0312 and ITC 0690, and 'Yangambi km5' were resistant to R. similis. 'Pisang Lilin', 'Bluggoe', 'Saba', 'Gros Michel', 'Williams', 'GCTCV 215', 'GCTCV 119', 'FHIA-01', 'PA 03.22', 'PA 03.44' were as susceptible to R. similis as 'Grande Naine'. None of the 14 genotypes evaluated were resistant to P. coffeae.
