Abstract
This publication describes basic requirements for preparing tissue-cultured banana plantlets in greenhouse nurseries and for field planting. To help growers fight the spread of banana bunchy top virus and mitigate its negative impact on the Hawai‘i banana industry, the CTAHR Agricultural Diagnostic Service Center will have tissue-cultured banana plants available for purchase as part of its seed distribution program.
