Tectus Matrix™

Greenhouse In vVvo Bioassays Cure of FOC TR4

Tectus Matrix® Proven as a Preventative &Curative for Panamá Disease, FOC TR4 at Texas A&M University

Tectus Matrix™ Bio Assay Evaluation (Preventative and Curative Applications) for Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense (TR4) in Cavendish Banana. Conducted at Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, College Station, Texas

This revolutionary natural fungicide is motivating the multi-billion-dollar agricultural industry with promises of ending one of the most serious fungi on bananas plants, Banana Wilt, aka Panamá Disease, FOC TR4.

The consequences for the global farm workers, consumers and the planet are staggering.

Salveo has been making bioassys in vitro and vivo on banana's Panama Disease at Texas A&M University’s Plant Pathology Department.

Tests were prepared by Dr. Young-Ki Jo, Texas A&M's AgriLife Extension at the Plant Pathology and Microbiology Building, College Station, Texas. This report is not an endorsement of the Tectus Matrix product by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. The Company has already proved during In Vitro tests at TAMU that Tectus Matrix™acts as a preventive and curative at 4 different strengths on Panama Disease FOC TR4. The randomized in vivo tests on live banana plants were completed in June 2020. The Bioassay report was positive as a curative and a preventative of Panamá Disease FOC TR4.

Background of Panamá Disease

Panama disease (Banana Fusarium wilt) is a plant disease that infects banana plants (Musa spp.). It is a wilting disease caused by the fungus Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (FOC) Mutation TR4 in the soil of bananas. The pathogen is resistant to fungicides and its control is limited to bio-security measures.

During the 1950s, the first outbreak of Panama disease almost wiped out commercial Gros Michel banana production. The Gros Michel banana was the dominant cultivar of bananas, and Fusarium wilt inflicted enormous costs and forced producers to switch to other, disease-resistant cultivars. Currently, a new outbreak of Panama disease caused by the strain Tropical Race 4 (TR4) threatens the production of today's most popular cultivars, Cavendish.

According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, “TR4 is the most destructive of all banana plant diseases. ‘Biosecurity measures’ including on-farm quarantine are recommended to lessen its spread, but there is no known fungicidal treatment.”1 Due to the longevity of the fungus in the soil, infected land becomes unavailable for bananas for decades. This inability to grow food is creating broad-based concern throughout the agricultural industry. Without significant intervention, the FAO report says, TR4 will spread and annihilate the majority of Cavendish banana plantations by 2040, affecting an annual production potential of millions of tons of bananas.

In short TR4 is a pandemic of bananas!

Tectus Matrix™ is the first In Vivo proven curative and preventative against TR4!
