(2022) Guide to understanding and managing bacterial diseases affecting Australian vegetable crops. Manual. Horticulture Innovation Australia.



Bacterial diseases cause significant impacts to vegetable production nationally. Disease outbreaks are sporadic and influenced substantially by weather conditions. This guide provides information on the most common bacterial diseases in Australian vegetables, how to identify them and what management is available for their control. Bacterial diseases can affect all production systems from open field to high-tech protected cropping.
This disease guide covers bacteria already present in Australia. There are many other bacterial diseases present overseas which could enter Australia.
It is important to be aware of these diseases and send samples for diagnoses if you suspect a new disease has arrived. For more information on exotic diseases please visit the Plant Health Australia website https://www.planthealthaustralia.com.au/).
