The first part of the presentation begins by summarising early work on potato blackleg and soft rot starting with basic studies on the properties and bacteriological characteristics of the causal organisms (Erwinia carotovora and atroseptica), the nature of the diseases they bring about, and the apparent lack of survival of the bacteria in soils. This is followed by an outline of the production of "pathogen free" potato stocks by raising plants from stem cuttings, and their release into…
