Basic information
  • EPPO Code: PSDMS1
  • Preferred name: Ralstonia solanacearum race 1 (no longer in use)


This name is no longer valid. Before the use of molecular tools, R. solanacearum was subdivided into races and biovars. Phylogenetic studies (2014) showed that the race/biovar subdivisions should no longer be used. See EPPO datasheet on Ralstonia solanacearum species complex for details. The data on distribution, host plants and categorization is kept as an archive to keep trace of reports made before this change.
