  • Abstract : These guidelines describe technical procedures that minimize the risk of pest introductions due to the movement of germplasm for research, crop improvement, plant breeding, exploration or conservation. It is important to emphasize that these guidelines are not meant for trade and commercial consignments concerning export and import of germplasm. This revision of the technical guidelines for banana has been produced by the Conservation Thematic Group of MusaNet, an international network for Musa genetic resources coordinated by Bioversity International ( These guidelines supersede those published in 1989 (Frison and Putter 1989) and 1996 (Diekmann and Putter 1996).
