Pseudocercospora fijiensis CIRAD86 (Mycfi2)

About Pseudocercospora fijiensis CIRAD86 (GCA_000340215)

Black tsigatoka is a leaf-spot disease of banana plants caused by the ascomycete fungus Mycosphaerella fijiensis (Morelet). Also known as black leaf streak, it was discovered in 1963 and named for its similarities with the yellow sigatoka, which is caused by Mycosphaerella musicola (Mulder), which was itself named after the Sigatoka Valley in Fiji, where an outbreak of this disease reached epidemic proportions from 1912 to 1923.

According to new terminology, the Tsigatoka disease complex is a cluster of three closely related fungi---yellow sigatoka (Pseudocercospora musae), eumusae leaf spot (Ps. eumusae), and black sigatoka (Ps. fijiensis).

Plants with leaves damaged by the disease may have up to 50% lower yield of fruit, and control can take up to 50 sprays a year.
