dc.description.abstractDiseases caused by bacterial plant pathogens are one of the most severe constraints to agricultural productivity. Many types of crops are attacked by these pathogens every season with substantial losses occurring. Diseases caused by bacteria are important because they generally have fewer means of management compared to other types of pathogens, and therefore can pose a more serious threat to crop production. Bacterial pathogens are capable of spreading rapidly and are often detected late when plants have already been invaded and considerable harm already done. Infection may also be latent and is only detected after seedlings have been transplanted or crop produce already delivered to markets. Therefore, strengthening the capacity of farmers to identify and effectively manage bacterial plant pathogens is essential to successful and profitable farming. 3.2 Lectureen_US
