(Katan, 2000). Due to the wide variety of host crops management of Fusarium spp. can be difficult, this paper will focus on some cultural controls that have been studied, some have proven to be very effective while others are still in debate and being studied. Crop rotation is perhaps the most effective form of management for grain diseases caused by pathogenic Fusarium spp.. Numerous studies have shown that, especially in wheat, the previous crop can make a large difference in the instances of disease.

G × E interaction is a differential genotypic expression across environments (Basford and Cooper, 1998). According to Romagosa and Fox (1993), G x E interaction reduces association between phenotypic and genotypic values of a genotype. This may cause promising selections from one environment to perform poorly in one and better in another environment, forcing plant breeders to examine genotypic adaptation (Sharma et al., 1987). Varieties are tested in many environments due to changing their performance and adaptation ability. However, important G × E interactions decreases relationship between phenotype and genotype and also genetics improvements in breeding programmes (Comst... ... middle of paper ... ...

GMO crops can be designed to resist herbicides like Round Up, so that produce crops can be indiscriminately sprayed and only the weeds are destroyed. Some crops, like GMO cotton, are designed to be toxic to common insect pests. Sometimes the modifications just remove unfavorable traits, or increase harvest yields in undesirable growing locations, allowing us to fill supermarket shelves with produce year-round. There is now a growing concern that GMO crops are causing irreversible changes to our conventional (non-GMO) crops and some wild relatives. The concern is that GMO plants are transferring their genetics, and sometimes, full GMO traits, to conventional crops.
Macro-propagation techniques (false and complete decapitation) and whole corm techniques (split corm and excised buds) involve use of whole suckers or relatively large corm pieces for rapid multiplication of healthy planting materials. Traditional planting of plantain does not emphasize pest and disease control measures.Newly planted fields are established for the most part, with untreated suckers from existing fields. Consequently, suckers used for the new orchards are invariably infested with nematodes and other soil borne pests and diseases. Transplanting the contaminated materials facilitates the persistence and spread of nematode and weevil problems and shortens the lifetime of plantain orchards to only one or two cycles of production, beyond which most plants topple, become unproductive or simply die (Coyne et al., 2006a&b; W... ... middle of paper ... ...itic nematodes in second ratoon of grown plantain from pared and unpared suckers.
