Pus-like fluid may be seen in potatoes when cut open. Commonly found throughout the United States, Fusarium wilt is a soil-borne pathogen that attacks potato, tomato, eggplant and pepper plants. Disease fungi (Fusarium oxysporum) enter through the roots and interfere with the water conducting vessels of the plant.As the infection spreads up into the stems and leaves it restricts water flow causing the foliage to wilt and turn yellow. Potato is an important food commodity and efforts to increase its productivity should focus on addressing production limiting factors. Bacterial wilt is a serious problem caused by bacteria in summer potato growing areas. Potato brown rot, caused by Ralstonia solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 (Phylovar II, sequevar 1), is a serious endemic disease in the Nile Delta of Egypt. Bacterial wilts of tomato, pepper, eggplant, and Irish potato caused by R. solanacearum were among the first diseases that Erwin Frink Smith proved to be caused by a bacterial pathogen. Guchi E (2015). The symptoms of bacterial wilt infection can be seen on all parts of infected plants. Potato is one of the most important food crops for smallholder farmers in the Ethiopian highlands. Disseminations 46 9. It also highlights the potential of host resistance as an important component of integrated management of bacterial wilt in Kenya. Observation of Bacterial wilt symptoms on potato The plants were left for natural disease infestation and regularly watered to ensure that the soil was moist. E. Damtew *, Shiferaw Tafesse, R. Lie, B. van Mierlo, B. Lemaga, K. Sharma, P.C. Proceedings of a national workshop held at Lumle Agricultural Research Centre, Nepal, 4-5 November 1996. Effective management of potato diseases such as bacterial wilt and late blight depends to a large extent on farmers’ knowledge of the diseases as well as on the integration of recommended management methods in their daily practices. Bacterial wilt of tomato is caused by either race 1 or race 3 of R. solanacearum and, rarely, by race 2. Bacterial wilt has spread to all potato growing areas in Kenya, affecting over 70% of potato farms and causing yield losses of between 50 to 100%. ... and a Race 3 biovar 2 strain that originated in the Andes and can cause brown rot of potatoes at much cooler temperatures than other R. solanacearum strains.
