Ralstonia solanacearum (Rs) race 3 biovar 2, the cause of bacterial wilt, is an economically important pathogen in tropical, subtropical and temperate regions of the world. We investigated the induced defence responses against tomato bacterial wilt by the application of acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM) and Pseudomonas fluorescens (Pf2) alone or in combination. Seedling treatments of tomato plants with either Pf2 or ASM significantly reduced disease severity of bacterial wilt (58 and 56% disease… CONTINUE READING
