Details on the situation of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. vesicatoria on capsicum in Turkey
In summer 1999 and 2000, 21 strains of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. vesicatoria (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) were isolated from diseased capsicum plants grown in 15 glasshouses and 6 commercial fields in the Mediterranean (Antalya) and eastern Anatolia (Erzurum, Erzincan and Yusufeli) regions of Turkey. Isolated strains were characterized by using physiological tests, fatty acid profiles, indirect ELISA, pathogenicity and hypersensitivity tests on differential pepper genotypes. Capsicum races 7, 8 and 10 of X. axonopodis pv. vesicatoria were identified.
