This study was undertaken to ascertain if the soft rot inciting Pectobacterium carotovorum/Erwinia carotovora would pass through the micropropagated bananas as a latent pathogen and cause disease during or post acclimatization. In vitro cultures of ‘Grand Naine’ were exposed to the pathogen by providing 100 μl of inoculum (0.001–1.0 at OD600 nm) at the lower leaf axil. These cultures showed a gradual development of soft rot symptoms coupled with obvious bacterial colony growth on banana… CONTINUE READING
