Banana apocalypse as fungal plague ‘could wipe out fruit in five years’!
A fast-evolving combination of diseases could put the entire world’s supply of bananas under threat, according to plant pathologist Ioannis Stergiopoulos.

The ‘Sigatoka complex’ is made up of three fungal diseases, which already reduce banana yields by 40% worldwide – and they are evolving to be more lethal to bananas.

What makes it so dangerous is that Cavendish bananas – the kind you normally get in the supermarket – are all grown from cuttings, so are effectively clones.
