Default Is this black sigatoka?

Is this black sigatoka? This is affecting the majority of my mysore bananas here in Southwest Florida. It tends to affect the oldest, 2nd oldest, and sometimes 3rd oldest leaves. Newer leaves look healthy. I have provided images of severely affected leaves and leaves just starting to look affected.

If it's not black sigatoka, any idea what it is?

Thank you!

DC,
I don't think so. It's probably just over-watering. Do you have other bananas in your yard that have the same symptoms? What about in other yards nearby? If there are no other plants nearby that show the symptoms, then it's not Black Sigatoka. Next time, just lighten up on the watering.

Thank you for the response chong, I appreciate it!

The last 6 weeks have been VERY wet here in SWFL, so I hope you're right and they just had too much water! Boy would that be a relief.

Fingers crossed!
