Banana

 Bananas are the most important tropical fruit in international trade. Most post-harvest diseases of bananas are due to fungal rots in the stalks and crowns. The most important were Col. musae (synonym Gloeosporium musarum) and Fusarium semitectum, with several other Fusarium species also significant.

 

Chitoly™ AF can be used to reduce the fungal rot and delay the ripening of banana.
