Abstract: Enset wilt caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. Musacearum is potentially destructive to enset crops, has a wide distribution, and limits the production of the crop in various parts of Ethiopia. Different disease management alternatives are being deployed to reduce its effect. Cultural disease management methods such as using healthy planting materials, optimum crop density, intercropping, rouging of the infected plant, host resistance, and Phyto-sanitation reduces the intensity of bacterial wilt by reducing available inoculum to initiate infection.

Abstract: The success of plant breeding activities entirely depends on the existence of genetic variability with respect to desired traits and selection skills of plant breeders. A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the extent of variability, heritability genetic advance, and character association among yield and yield-related traits in lowland GSR. The experiment was conducted using 20 low-land green supper rice genotypes in the Northwestern part of Ethiopia at Pawe agricultural research center for three consecutive years from 2016-2018 main cropping seasons.
