Plantains are able to adapt to a variety of ecosystems and offer great potential in food production; however, despite this, plantain cultivation remains a marginal activity. The cultivation of plantain is under exploited due to inadequate provision of good quality propagation material. The negative influence of parasites also leads to the use of poor quality suckers, resulting in a growth cycle of over two years. The return on the effort put in by farmers is therefore unsatisfactory, leading to further discouragement among plantain growers. Fortunately, a number of intensive production techniques havebeen developed, including in vitro cultivation, typically used in research centres, and macropropagation using the plantlet rom stem fragments (usually named the PIF technique)
