Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris (Xcv) is a seedborne bacterium causing bacterial spot in pepper and tomato. The pathogen has been frequently found in Indonesia, although a clear relation with seed borne infections was never established. Xcv has been redistributed recently in three species, viz. Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. vesicatoria, Xanthomonas vesicatoria and Xanthomonas gardnerii. Most strains within a species are strictly host specific, although some strains can infect both tomato and pepper. It is unknown which species are present in Indonesia.
