At least, there were found four important banana diseases, such as fusarial wilt (Panama disease), bacterial wilt (Moko and blood disease), Sigatoka leaf spot and bunchy top disease. In the Eastern Indonesia, especially Maluku, Irian Jaya and Sulawesi islands are believed to be a native area of the Musa diseases.
