Recently, in Central Florida tomato production fields, tomato foliage and fruit were observed with symptoms similar to bacterial speck. Fluorescent pseudomonads were consistently isolated and the strains were characterized by standard LOPAT tests, pathogenicity tests, and genetic characterization using 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) sequences and multilocus(More)
