Abstract
Banana Xanthomonas wilt (BXW) caused by Xanthomonas campestris p.v. musacearum (Xcm) affects all banana cultivars and causes up to 100% crop loss. The disease was first reported in western Kenya in 2006, spreads very fast and has no single effective control measure available, no natural resistance among the banana cultivars. This study was carried out to establish the spread of BXW in banana producing areas and develop integrated management options.
