The objective was to find clones of the edible aroids, chiefly tannia (Xanthosoma sagittifolium), with high levels of adaptability and tolerance to disease, particularly the tannia root rot disease. This was approached in 3 ways: 1) Clones from throughout the 5 islands were brought together for selection and maintenance in 5 germplasm collections. Three clones, 'Jabba', 'Toby' and 'Calaloo Tan ...

Post harvest fungal corm rot of dasheen (Colocasia esculenta var. esculenta) is the most severe constraint affecting its storage and export. It is first manifested as an irregular pink tinge on the corm, initiated from natural wounds, which gradually becomes blackened with pycnidia. Two fungi, Pythium spp. and Botryodiplodia spp. have been isolated from diseased corms

The nature properties and usage of metalaxyl (ridomil) and recommendations for its use on tannia [Xanthosoma sagittifolium]
Pattenjalidial et al. 
The acylanaline-based fungicide, Metalaxyl, is active against Domycetes and used successfully against Pythium root-rot disease of tannia. Its continuous use induces resistant strains to foliar pathogens but no record of similar activity is shown for root/soil borne pathogens. The chemical shows acropetal activity when applied to the root zone, both upwards and downwards. It is more toxic orall ...
