Abstract:

India is the top country by Banana production in the world as of 2019, bananas production in India was 30.5 million tonnes that accounts for 26.02% of the world's bananas production. The top 5 countries (others are China, Indonesia, Brazil, and Ecuador) account for 53.94% of it. The world's total bananas production was estimated at 117 million tonnes in 2019.In India, states like Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh contribute more than 70 per cent of the country's banana production. Banana and plantain (Musa spp.), produced in 10.3 million ha in the tropics, are among the world's top 10 food crops. They are vegetative propagated using suckers or tissue culture plants and grown almost as perennial plantations. They are vulnerable to pests and pathogens, especially viruses which causes reduction in yield and are also hinders to the international exchange of germplasm. The most economically important viruses of banana and plantain are Banana bunchy top virus (BBTV), a complex of banana streak viruses (BSVs) and Banana bract mosaic virus (BBrMV). BBTV is known to cause the most serious economic losses contributing to yield reduction of up to 100% and responsible for a dramatic reduction in cropping area. The BSVs exist as episomal and endogenous forms are known to be worldwide in distribution. In India and the Philippines, BBrMV is known to be economically important.
