“[This work was conducted] to monitor the presence of streptomycin resistance in epiphytic bacterial populations following applications of streptomycin and kasugamycin after bloom.” Erwinia amylovora, the causal agent of fire blight, is a destructive bacterial pathogen capable of causing disease in numerous rosaceous plant species throughout t h e w o r l d ( B o n n 2 0 0 0 ) . This pathogen i s e s p e c i a l l y devastating in apple and pear a n d l e a d s t o c o n s i d e r a b l e p r o… CONTINUE READING
