Control of Erwinia amylovora

Experiments were carried out in Germany to test several bactericides in their efficacy for control of Erwinia amylovora (EPPO A2 organism) in Cotoneaster salicifolius floccosus.
The bactericides flumequine, oxonilic acid, nourseothricin (antibiotic) and fosetyl-Al were tested.
The field experiments showed that all tested bactericides (except fosetyl-Al) controlled fireblight with >80% efficacy. The antibiotic nourseothricin controlled the disease up to 95% and reached a higher rate of control than the control application with streptomycin.
