The severity of Fusarium wilt of bananas has long been classified based on visual assessment of necrosis in rhizome or pseudostem cross-sections. The improved method proposed here uses digital image analysis to quantify the proportion of rhizome tissue that is necrotic. It agrees well with visual classification, but provides greater reproducibility, precision and statistical power.
