Comments
From Jiang et al. (2017): bacterial wilt was first observed on peanut in the 1930s and sweet potato in the 1950s. Since 1960s, it expanded to many areas and many host plants (more than 90 species from 39 botanical families). The disease has now been reported from 30 Chinese provinces, more frequently from Southern and Eastern areas than from Northern and Western areas. During the last decade, it has also been found more frequently than before in temperate and cool areas.
