  • Pseudomonas mors-prunorum Wormald, the organism causing bacterial canker of stone-fruits, was present on healthy cherry leaves during the autumn in numbers sufficient to suggest that they were the main source of inoculum for the infection of stems and branches. Quantitative estimates of the pathogen could be obtained by shaking leaves in water and plating out the washings. This method was examined in detail as a possible means of comparing the inoculum potentials on different cherry varieties… CONTINUE READING
