Clavibacter michiganense ssp. sepedonicus present in Algeria
A survey has been carried out on bacterial pathogens of ware potatoes in Algeria. Samples of plants and tubers were collected in the coastal region near Alger and analysed by appropriate diagnostic tests.
On this basis, the presence of two bacterial diseases was reported for the first time in Algeria: ring rot due to Clavibacter michiganense ssp. sepedonicus (EPPO A2 organism) and black leg due to Erwinia carotovora ssp. atroseptica. However, Pseudomonas solanacearum (EPPO A2 organism) was not found.
