Year 2015 - Extinction of Bananas?
Start Date: 10/3/2018Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 10/3/2018End Time: 12:00 PM
Event Description:
Join us for a discussion on the region's dependence of
this seemingly simple fruit: the banana. You will learn
about this species and its present and future existence.
Randy Ploetz is an authority on banana diseases. His
talk will center on Fusarium wilt, a banana disease of
the Eastern Hemisphere. This presentation is aimed
at raising awareness and educating consumers and
producers of the Americas about this pathogen and its
consequences, if this disease proliferates. A sad day it
would be when this delicious fruit exists no more.
Hosted by the Hispanic Heritage Committee
