Elimination of Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. sepedonicus and Ralstonia solanacearum from contaminated waters
Laboratory experiments done in Germany showed that peracids (commercial names Clarmarin and Degaclean) with the addition of a catalase inhibitor (KH10) can be used to eliminate rapidly Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. sepedonicus and Ralstonia solanacearum (both EPPO A2 quarantine pests) from contaminated waters. Trials were done on aqueous suspensions of both bacteria and also on waste waters from a starch company to which R. solanacearum had been added.
