  • Abstract : This report documents the third of three collecting missions undertaken in 2019 with funding from the Crop Trust. The mission to West New Britain, PNG from 30 Sept to 12 Oct, 2019 resulted in 72 accessions of wild species and cultivars, of which 62 seemed to be new or new variants of known genotypes, including AA, AAB and Fe'i bananas. A significant finding is the observation of two stands of M. maclayi. The mission was co-organised by Bioversity International and NARI.
