Detection of Ralstonia solanacearum from Asymptomatic Tomato Plants, Irrigation Water, and Soil Through Non-selective Enrichment Medium with hrp Gene-Based Bio-PCR

Abstract

Bacterial wilt of tomato caused by Ralstonia solanacearum (Smith) Yabuuchi et al. (Microbiol Immunol 39:897–904, 1995) is a serious disease, which causes losses up to 60 % depending on environmental conditions, soil property, and cultivars. In present investigation, nucleotide sequences of virulence, hypersensitive response and pathogenicity (hrp) gene were… (More)
