"Once the plantation had been affected by the Panama disease, the farmers can no longer plant the same variety, thus, a need to develop a new variety resistant of this disease," Antig added.
According to Antig, there had been several varieties that were developed but are still on observation stages.
"We continue to test if these are indeed the varieties we need.
Research is a very long process, that's why it is also very expensive.

Antig said genetic engineering is a concept not yet widely accepted in the banana industry and market.
