Through the participation of farmers, researchers, and entrepreneurs, we aim to develop and implement quick and clean production systems for plantain. Activities include: implementing the use of compost leachate of crop residues and other green practices in the control of Sigatoka and Moko; validating and refining the biological control of weevils; and evaluating different genotypes for resistance to plantain weevil, looking at adaptability, productivity, and market acceptance.
