Populations of endophytic bacteria which influence host-resistance to Erwinia-induced bacterial soft rot in potato tubers

Abstract

The ability of endophytic bacteria to influence Erwinia carotovora var. atroseptica (Eca) growth and disease development was examined in potatoes. Bacterial populations isolated from within the tubers of five potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) cultivars (Kennebec, Butte, Green Mountain, Russet Burbank and Sebago) showed antibiosis toward Eca in an in vitro assay… (More)
