Abstract


Fifteen diploid and nine triploid banana accessions were screened under field conditions for their reaction to Radopholus similis. Among the diploids, Anaikomban, Pisang Lilin, Pisang Jari Buaya and Kunnan were rated resistant, while Vennettu Kunnan and Then Kunnan were rated tolerant. The remaining accessions were rated susceptible. Among the triploids, Yangambi km 5 was rated as resistant and Karpooravalli as tolerant. The triploid varieties Robusta and Red Banana were highly susceptible and the remainder were rated as susceptible.
