In most regions of the world, nematodes are recognized as important pests of bananas. Because banana nematodes attack the root and/or corm tissues, plant growth and yield are affected. The objective of these technical guidelines is to stimulate interest in nematode resistance and tolerance screening in bananas, and to provide a methodology for carrying out such screening: plant material, nematode inoculum, screening experiments in pots or in the field, nematode reproduction assessment, and damage assessment INIBAP/CTA (French version available)
