Surveys on bacterial diseases of tomato in the Czech and Slovak Republics
In 1992 and 1993, field surveys on bacterial diseases of tomato have been conducted in Czech and Slovak Republics. The main bacterial disease affecting tomato in the Czech and Slovak Republics was Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato. Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria has also been found in both years. Although X. campestris pv. vesicatoria (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) was not very frequent, these surveys confirmed its presence in the Czech and Slovak Republics. The authors felt that under very warm conditions, with abundant rainfall, this disease could be a problem. In addition, resistance of these two bacteria to streptomycin has been studied but no strain was found to be resistant.
