Pectolytic bacteria were isolated from potato tubers and stems showing tuber soft rot and blackleg symptoms. Approximately half (52 %) of the isolates could grow at both 27 and 37 °C while another half (48 %) failed to grow at 37 °C. All isolates could be amplified with primers specific to the pectate lyase (pel) gene. Carbon utilisation profiles could not(More)
The efficacy of three elicitors, DL-β-aminobutyric acid (BABA), Acibenzolar-S-methyl (Bion) and Messenger (Harpin) on potato plants inoculated with Meloidogyne incognita second stage juveniles (J2s) was investigated in this study. The efficacy of each elicitor was evaluated based on galling index, egg numbers, total root knot nematode (RKN) population(More)
