  • Abstract : The training held at UPLB aimed to: (1) enhance capacity for nematode research in the region, specifically on nematode management in Musa; (2) compile up-to-date information on the status of nematodes in Musa and ongoing nematological activities in the region; and (3) bring together and work out future collaborations among partners in the region. The training workshop offers an opportunity to summarize the status of Musa nematode research in the region through country reports. Technical presentations and hands-on exercises on nematode survey, collection and culture techniques and field trips to the laboratories were also undertaken. The activity concluded with a workshop to discuss and come up with a set of protocols for survey, collection and culture of Musa nematodes. The country status reports are published in the accompanying proceedings of this technical manual.
