Tip-over disease in Banana is an important bacterial disease caused by Erwinia carotovora subsp. Carotovora. The disease cause severe yield loss in banana particularly in tissue cultured plantations.

Survey reported highest disease incidence (20.35 %) at Muddaballi village of Koppal district. The least incidence (1.15%) was recorded in Ankammanahal village of Sandur taluk of Bellary district. Taluk wise mean incidence revealed that, highest disease incidence of 17.92 per cent was recorded in Koppal followed by Shimoga (12.0%), Gangavati (8.07%), Holalkere (7.8%) and Sagar (6.30%) taluks. The minimum incidence of 1.75 per cent was recorded in Sandur, Hospet (4.69%), Hiriyur (5.7%) taluks. District-wise, highest tip over incidence of 12.99 was recorded from Koppal followed by Shimoga (9.15%) and Chitrdurga (6.75%).
