#AceFoodReport – Apr.19:Panama disease, an infection that ravages banana plants, has been sweeping across Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Africa: The impact has been devastating.
From a report: In the Philippines alone, losses have totalled US$400-million: And the disease threatens not only the livelihoods of everyone in this US$44 billion industry but also the 400m people in developing countries who depend on bananas for a substantial proportion of their calorie intake.
However, there may be hope: In an attempt to save the banana and the industry that produces it, scientists are in a race to create a new plant resistant to Panama disease: But perhaps this crisis is a warning that we are growing our food in an unsustainable way and we will need to look to more radical changes for a permanent solution.
