Abstract

Bacterial soft rot in potato doliage and tubers is caused by various species in the genera Pectobacterium and Dickeya. Until recently, most potato stem rots were characterized as blackleg, a distinctive black-colored decay starting from the seed tuber; or aerial stem rot, a soft rot of aboveground stems, usally initiaded through stem wounds.
