Dectection of Xanthomonas campestris pv. oryzae in rice seeds
In India, several techniques for the detection of Xanthomonas campestris pv. oryzae (EPPO A1 organism) were compared for their suitability to detect the bacteria in rice seeds.
Direct immunofluorescence was found to be the most sensitive technique enabling the detection of 10ý cfu/ml (colony forming units per ml)
