Clavibacter nebraskensis Li et al. 2018 - (Goss's wilt of corn)

This bacterium is closely related to Clavibacter michiganensis and until 2018 has been regarded as a subspecies of C. michiganensis. It is found mainly in some midwestern states of the U.S. like Nebraska, Colorado, and Wyoming, causing Goss's bacterial leaf blight and wilt of maize/corn. The disease has caused widespread outbreaks and serious agricultural losses since 2006, although it has been known in North America earlier. More recently, it has been reported from new areas like the Canadian Prairie provinces (Howard et al., 2015).
