Comments
Gutarra et al. (2017): In Peru, bacterial wilt was first reported in 1967 in banana and plantain and in tomato along the Amazon river. In potato, it was first discovered in the highlands of the departments of Ancash, Cajamarca, and La Libertad and in central Peru in the department of Junin. Surprisingly it was also found in potato planted on virgin soils in the Amazon basin in the Northern part of the country at Yurimaguas in the department of Loreto, suggesting that it was endemic to the area.
