Plant pathogenicity in the genus Streptomyces
Plant Disease 81 (8), 836-846
Abstract: The diseases caused by plant pathogenic Streptomyces species are reviewed. These include the economically important disease potato scab caused by Streptomyces scabies and S. acidiscabies. Also S. ipomoeae causes significant economic losses on sweet potato by reducing the yields as well as marketability of the tubers. Further a Streptomyces species has been found to cause root tumors on cucurbits in Japan. The phytotoxin production of plant pathogenic Streptomyces species is also reviewed.
