Banana Bunch Top Virus (BBTV) is the most serious disease on banana and causes devastating losses on banana in areas where it occurs. The losses estimated in 100% if control measures a not implemented in infected areas. The earliest symptom of BBTV is a series of dark green lines on the otherwise pale green underside of the leaf petiole where it branches away from the pseudostem. These lines often show a “dot-dash” symptom like Morse code. The best leaf to identify this specific symptom is the second youngest leaf, but at a very early stage of infection, the symptom is indistinct. Banana bunchy top virus is spread between banana plants by the banana aphid (Pentalonia nigronervosa). It is spread over longer distances by the movement of infected planting material. In Mozambique the disease was first official reported in June 2016, in a commercial farm located in Guija District and in a small farm in Chokwe District, Gaza Province, southern Mozambique, after the surveillance conducted in all this province. The total area in production is 309 ha but only 0,2 % are infected in private sector and about 10 ha are infected in Smallholder farmers. After the report of the disease the NPPO of Mozambique together with South African scientists visited the infested plantation where samples from both plantation were collected for diagnostic at ARC-Tropical and Subtropical Crops laboratory in South Africa. After confirmation the Mozambique NPPO in collaboration with banana disease specialist from South Africa, trained technicians and extension officers, employees, small holder farmers and households on the disease identification and management. Awareness material was produced to sensitize the banana growers and public in general, in the impact of the disease. The NPPO developed the phytosanitary measures to be implemented for all growers in the affected areas, consisting on controlling the aphid (vectors) and destroying the infected plants.
