Bacterial canker caused by Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis (Smith) and bacterial spot caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria (Doidge) Dye have become important diseases of tomato in Egypt. The present work was planned to evaluate the reaction of different tomato cultivars and the role of seeds to transmit both pathogens. Cultivars of Dora, Flora-Dade, KTM141, Money Maker, Niagra, Super strain B hybrid and GS12 were moderately resistant to both diseases, but Castle rock…

Evaluation of Germplasm and Biocontrol Agents against Bacterial Canker (Clavibacter michiganensis Subsp. Michiganensis) of Tomato in Himachal Pradesh

Among five bacterial biocontrol agents tested against the bacterial pathogen in vitro, Pseudomonas flourescens strain PfS-1 was found effective in inhibiting the growth of the pathogen.

Nano-Metals Forming Bacteria in Egypt. II. Efficacy towards Some Bacterial Soft Rot/Blackleg Genera ex vivo and Bio-Control in vivo as Eco-Friendly Therapeutic against Dickeya Solani

FeNPs can be used to control soft rot/blackleg disease caused by D. solani instead of copper pesticide and can be considered as a new and alternative approach to traditional disease management methods, and also increase the nutritional value of the plants.



Towards the biological control of fungal and bacterial diseases of tomato using antagonistic Streptomyces spp.

This investigation was designed to explore the potential of microbial antagonism in the control of some tomato diseases including bacterial, Fusarium and Verticillium wilts; early blight; bacterial

Outbreaks of Bacterial Spot Caused by Xanthomonas gardneri on Processing Tomato in Central-West Brazil.

This is the first report of outbreaks of bacterial spot on tomato caused by X. gardneri, which could be grouped into two PFGE haplotypes, were unable to hydrolyze starch and pectate and to utilize gentiobiose and maltose.

Populations of Xanthonomas campestris pv. vesicatoria in lesions of susceptible and resistant tomato genotypes

Tomato genotypes resistant (R), susceptible (S), partially resistant (PR), and F 1 progeny of R×S and R×PR crosses developed bacterial spot lesions when inoculated with Xanthomonas campestris pv.

Internal and external infections of fruits and seeds of peppers by Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria

Fruit infection by Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria (Doidge 1920) Dye 1978 was monitored by scanning electron microscopy and by bacterial counts. Possible sites for bacterial penetration were

First Record of Bacterial Canker (Clavibacter michiganensis ssp. michiganensis) on Tomato in Cyprus

An extensive survey during 1998–99 detected 10 additional cases of bacterial canker, all in the wider agro-ecological zone of initial disease detection, and the pathogen Clavibacter michiganensis was consistently isolated from diseased plants, identified, and its pathogenicity proved.

Effect of Bactericides on Population Sizes and Spread of Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis on Tomatoes in the Greenhouse and on Disease Development and Crop Yield in the Field.

The trend was for these treatments to increase the survival of inoculated transplants in the field in comparison to the inoculated control, and none of the treatments significantly reduced the incidence of fruit spotting.

Several genes in Lycopersicon esculentum control hypersensitivity to Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria

Resistance in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) accession Hawaii 7998 (H7998) to bacterial spot caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria is associated with a hypersensitive reaction. In F 1

Physiological, chemical, serological, and pathogenic analyses of a worldwide collection of Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria strains.

Cluster analyses of serological, carbon substrate utilization, and fatty acid composition data resulted in dendrograms with interspersed clusters of A and B strains, suggesting that the strain populations within each group are heterogeneous, but further analysis of the data identified features unique to members of each group.

A differential medium for the semiselective isolation of Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria and other cellulolytic xanthomonads from various natural sources

A semiselective medium (CMC-E) was more effective than Tween medium B agar or nutrient agar for recovery of Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria from the environment or plant material. The
