Alec,

Black Sigatoka (note spelling) is caused by the fungus Mycosphaerella
fijiensis.

Here is a web address that should give you a start;

http://www.msu.edu/~andreaj/sigatoka/sigatoka.html

I am not an expert in the diseases of banana, but there seem to be lots
of them out there whom you could contact.
