Researchers achieve breakthrough in reinforcing plantain microscopic worms

For the first time ever, scientists have built into plantain a viable genetic defense against nematodes – microscopic worms that infest and eat away at the plant’s roots, making them easily topple over and significantly reduce their production. Apart from bacterial wilt diseases, nematodes are among the most economically devastating pests of banana and plantain, the fourth most important staple in sub-Saharan Africa.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
