Abstract

Bacterial canker caused by Clavibacter michiganensis ssp. michiganensis was detected during a survey of tomato fields in the state of Karnataka, India. The disease incidence ranged from 25 to 48. The pathogen was isolated from infected plant material and seeds. The pathogen was also detected in tomato seeds by laboratory assay and its identity was confirmed by biochemical, physiological, hypersensitivity in four-o’clock plant (Mirabilis jalapa) and pathogenicity tests. A seed transmission rate of up to 46 was observed in naturally infested seed. Biological seed treatment with antagonistic Pseudomonas fluorescens improved seed quality (p=0.05) under laboratory conditions and drastically reduced the bacterial canker incidence in field.
