Most banana cultivars are susceptible to many diseases, whereas Sigatoka leads to greatest yield losses. One of the strategies to overcome this disease is thorough banana genetic breeding which consists in the obtainment of improved (AA) diploids which are then crossed with triploids obtaining (AAAB) tetraploid disease resistant bananas also presenting other important agronomic characteristics. The prior knowledge of the genetic diversity of (AA) diploids, is therefore considered indispensabledoi:10.3844/ajassp.2004.276.278 fatcat:w6popluqnzc73d5ybvsz432woa
