Cell suspensions of Xcd-lux and a mixture containing the five guttation bacteria were inoculated into two tubes containing filter-sterilized guttation fluid from cultivar Marian Seefurth. Survival of Xcd-lux in guttation fluids of anthurium plants and isolation of inhibitory bacterial strains. The pH values of individual guttation fluid samples after incubation ranged from 5.5 to 7.5, but the pH values were not related to the inhibitory effects of the guttation fluids. How to Treat Bacterial Blight. Do not add … Individual guttation bacteria had no effect on the growth or survival of Xcd-lux when they were coinoculated into the filter-sterilized guttation fluids (Fig. The leaves normally produced 100 to 500 μl of guttation fluid per leaf overnight. Plant materials and growth conditions.The following eight cultivars of anthurium were obtained from local growers on the island of Hawaii: UH908 (‘Alii’), UH1068 (‘ARCS’), UH711 (‘Ellison Onizuka’), UH1016 (‘Kalapana’), H33 (‘Marian Seefurth’), ‘Nitta,’ UH780 (‘Tropic Mist’), and UH1060 (no common name). dieffenbachiae (Xad). Twenty nontreated plants were sprayed with sterile distilled water. 1B through F). By 1992, it had been reported in the Philippines, Guam, Australia, Florida, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, The numbers in parentheses are the logarithms of the initial sizes of the populations of all bacteria (mean of four replicates) in guttation fluids from the cultivars. Six different bacterial mixtures (mixtures A through F), each consisting of four or five strains, were used, and the inhibitory effects of these mixtures on Xcd-lux in filter-sterilized guttation fluid were compared. This phenomenon was observed more frequently with some cultivars (e.g., cultivars ARCS and UH1060) than with others. The leaves were subsequently inoculated with Xcd-lux. Inhibition of growth was not observed in filter-sterilized guttation fluids and was restored to original levels only by reintroducing specific mixtures of bacteria into filter-sterilized guttation fluids. Thank you for sharing this Applied and Environmental Microbiology article. It was reported previously that the inhibition of Erwinia amylovora by antibiotics produced by strains of E. herbicola was reduced in the presence of various amino acids (31). 3 p. (Commodity Fact Sheet; CFS-AN-4A). dieffenbachiae [27]) was used in this study (4); this strain is referred to below as strain Xcd-lux. Mixture F consisted of two strains isolated from cultivar Ellison Onizuka and three strains isolated from cultivar Nitta. No effective pesticides currently are registered for bacterial blight in Hawaii. More studies are needed to determine how guttation bacteria can be used for biological control of anthurium blight. Invasion of the pathogen through hydathodes at leaf margins was reduced by applying the strain mixture to the leaves. After 0, 3, 7, and 10 days of incubation, a 100-μl subsample was removed from each tube, and the cell densities of Xcd-lux and all guttation bacteria were determined by dilution plate counting on PGM containing 50 μg of rifampin per ml, 10 μg of tetracycline per ml, and 100 μg of cycloheximide per ml and TZC medium containing 100 μg of cycloheximide per ml, respectively. The daily minimum and maximum temperatures in the glasshouse were 18 to 22 and 26 to 30°C, respectively. Such a balanced and self-sustaining bacterial community is ideal for biological control if the same phenomenon can be reproduced in planta. The sizes of populations of Xcd-lux in sterile distilled water and phosphate buffer 14 days after inoculation were 6.01 and 5.70 log CFU/ml, respectively. Novelanthurium hybrids produced by tissue culture will be indexed for disease and nematode … Cultivar Marian Seefurth is highly susceptible to foliar infection, and the other three cultivars are resistant (5). It is not known whether inhibitory bacterial communities are formed coincidentally or are associated with certain cultivars. The bars represent the means of four replicates. All of the plants were later inoculated with Xcd-lux. The proposed research isdesigned to bring all components of an integrated pest management program together. Survival of Xcd-lux in guttation fluids was determined by inoculating 15-μl portions of a cell suspension (adjusted to a density of ∼2.0 × 108 CFU/ml) into the tubes containing filter-sterilized or nonfiltered guttation fluids (four replicates each). One very effective bacterial community consisted of five species isolated from inhibitory guttation fluids of two susceptible anthurium cultivars. Effects of mineral nutrients (concentration, 100 μM) added to guttation fluid on the inhibition of Xcd-lux by guttation bacteria. Effects of organic nutrients (concentration, 0.1%) added to guttation fluid on the inhibition of Xcd-lux by guttation bacteria. Filtration also removes other microorganisms, such as fungi, algae, and protozoans, from guttation fluids. Once introduced into a new growing area, bacterial blight may result in 50 to 100% loss of plants. The five guttation bacteria found in this study appear to be common bacterial species indigenous to anthurium leaves. The density of Xcd-lux cells in the guttation fluid that had not been inoculated with any bacteria was 7.10 ± 0.02 log CFU/ml after 7 days of incubation. Because of its attractive, long-lasting flowers, Anthurium is popular as both an exotic cut-flower crop and as a flowering potted-plant crop. A sudden decrease in the pH during incubation is unlikely since anthurium guttation fluid is highly buffered, possibly as a result of ions in the xylem sap that form carbonates (7). On the next day, leaves were wounded by notching them (arrowheads), and the same bacterial mixture was placed on the wounds. The average values calculated from the data collected by the three examiners (percentage data) were transformed by the arcsine transformation and then analyzed by analysis of variance. We do not retain these email addresses. University of Maryland, Beltsville p 25 Google Scholar. Two other bacterial mixtures (mixtures C and F) were as inhibitory to Xcd-lux as mixture A (GUT3, GUT4, GUT5, GUT6, and GUT9), implying that the same bacterial species may be found in different inhibitory mixtures or that inhibitory bacterial mixtures may be exchangeable. Effects of some organic and mineral nutrients on inhibition of Xcd-lux by guttation bacteria. dieffenbachiae in guttation fluids (xylem sap exuded from leaf margins) of anthuriums were suppressed by several bacterial strains indigenous to leaves of various anthurium cultivars. Twenty-eight bacterial isolates from rhizospheric regions were identified as different Bacillus spp. Guttation fluids were collected from leaves that produced more than 500 μl overnight (six, six, and two cultivar ARCS, Marian Seefurth, and UH1060 samples, respectively), and 500 μl of each fluid was placed in a sterile test tube (100 by 13 mm) and used to determine the effect of the fluid on the growth of Xcd-lux. Also, the pathogen can be introduced into clean fields by aerosols (2). Several resistant (tolerant) cultivars have been developed by conventional breeding and have been grown widely in recent years. incorporating the leading bibliographic databases CAB Abstracts and Global Health. ex André), which is caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. After 7 or 14 days of incubation, the average size of the population of Xcd-lux in nonfiltered guttation fluids from cultivar Marian Seefurth was significantly smaller than the average size of the population of Xcd-lux in nonfiltered guttation fluids from cultivar ARCS, Kalapana, or Tropic Mist. Biostimulation was observed on all anthurium cultivars treated with the beneficial strains. The bacterium Xanthomonas campestris pv. Before inoculation, the surfaces of the leaves were disinfested with 70% ethanol, and the plants were placed inside clean plastic bags. After incubation for 14 days, all remaining samples of guttation fluids (∼1.3 ml) were individually filter sterilized, and 1.0-ml aliquots were placed in sterile tubes. dieffenbachiae), and burrowing nematodes, Radopholus similis, and their effect on viability of the cuttings.Xa pv. Twelve plants were wounded by notching the two youngest leaves on each plant, and 12 plants were not wounded. In July 2007, symptoms of bacterial blight were observed on leaves of anthurium plants growing in a commercial greenhouse in central Poland. Survival of Xcd-lux in filter-sterilized and nonsterile guttation fluids from various anthurium cultivars. This indicates that guttation fluid itself does not inhibit the pathogen; instead, biotic factors are involved in the inhibition. Heat treatment by water, air or vapor has been effectively used for many years to disinfest propagative plant … Bars = 5 cm. Symptoms were manifested as water soaked lesions that turned dark brown with chlorotic margins, forming regular or round spots up to 2 cm diameter, most often at the leaf margins. The disinfested leaves were each covered with a clean plastic bag in the evening, and the plants were watered. Yet, bacterial blight has not been eradicated from production fields, since the mild climate and persistent latent infections perpetuate the disease in symptomless plants (5, 17). The density of the suspension was adjusted to ∼109 CFU/ml, and 7.00 log CFU/ml was added initially to each sample in a test tube. Bars marked by the same letter were not significantly different (P = 0.01), as determined by the SNK test. A similar test was conducted to monitor the densities of individual guttation bacteria. Effects of guttation bacteria on suppression of foliar infection by Xcd-lux. dieffenbachiae (McCulloch and Pirone 1939) Dye (= Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. The bars represent the means of four replicates. It is, however, impossible to treat the disease. This is to ensure that we give you the best experience possible. Samples obtained from the same leaf were pooled in a sterile glass tube and stored at 5°C until the amount of guttation fluid exceeded 4 ml for all plants. The average sizes of the populations of Xcd-lux measured 14 days after inoculation were significantly smaller (P = 0.01) in the nonfiltered fluids than in the filtered fluids for all cultivars (Fig.3). Epidemiology and control of anthurium blight, Relationship of aerosols to anthurium blight. Four ecofriendly materials viz., turmeric powder impregnated in sodium bicarbonate (0.15%), neem oil (2%), Pseudomonas fluorescens (a proprietary product at 1.5%) and cow dung extract (7.5%) were compared with streptocycline (100 µg ml-1) and Captan (0.3%) for their efficacy in controlling bacterial blight of anthurium. After the treated leaves were dried at room temperature, all of the plants were spray inoculated with a suspension of Xcd-lux cells (concentration, ∼106 CFU/ml) as described previously (5). Survival of Xcd-lux in guttation fluids from various anthurium cultivars (first trial). The numbers in parentheses are the logarithms of the initial sizes of the populations of all bacteria (mean of four replicates) in guttation fluids from the cultivars. If you would like to, you can learn more about the cookies we use. In the first trial, infection occurred at 39 of 40 notched sites in the nontreated leaves but at only three sites in the treated leaves. syringae), and Erwinia herbicola inhibited Xcd-lux in anthurium guttation fluid (4a). The sizes of the populations of individual strains were determined separately. This experiment was repeated with cultivar ARCS, Kalapana, Marian Seefurth, Nitta, and Tropic Mist plants. There is no actual treatment for bacterial blight. 9). However, glucose did not have any impact on the number of total bacteria despite the fact that it enhanced survival of Xcd-lux in the presence of guttation bacteria (Fig. To this preparation we added 15 μl of the GUT3, GUT4, GUT5, GUT6, or GUT9 cell suspension or 15 μl of a mixture containing equal volumes of the cell suspensions of the five strains. The results of two repeated experiments indicated that nonfiltered guttation fluids from cultivar Marian Seefurth were more inhibitory than nonfiltered guttation fluids from cultivar ARCS, Kalapana, or Tropic Mist. Thus, possible toxic compounds (e.g., phytoalexins) or factors induced by the host defense mechanisms (e.g., reactive oxygen species) were not expected to be involved. Anthurium plants (height, 30 to 40 cm) were transplanted into black cinder in pots (10 by 10 cm) and were fertilized with pellets of Nutricote (13-13-13 plus microelements in a 70-day release formulation; Chisso Asahi Co., Ltd., Tokyo, Japan) at a rate of about 0.6 to 0.7 g per pot. You can now claim your publications on CAB Direct with your ORCID iD! Under relatively controlled temperatures … By 14 days after inoculation, the sizes of the populations of Xcd-lux in the guttation fluids containing glucose, peptone, and yeast extract were not significantly different than the sizes of the population of Xcd-lux in the fluid containing no guttation bacteria. However, when the guttation bacteria were applied to intact (nonnotched) leaves, they were less effective in disease suppression than the guttation bacteria that were applied to notched leaves. This article provides guidelines to identify and treat diseases that may be encountered during commercial greenhouse production of Anthurium. Bacterial treatment is also proving to be beneficial, especially with Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus amyloliquefaciens. Moreover, only the pathogen was eliminated from a mixture containing the pathogen and the five guttation bacteria, and the populations of the five guttation bacteria were sustained for 14 days in the guttation fluid. 23pp. This procedure ensured that slight differences in the mixing ratios (expected in experiments conducted at different times) did not drastically affect the inhibitory effects of the mixtures. Effects of organic and mineral nutrients on inhibition of Xcd-lux by guttation bacteria.When glucose, peptone, and yeast extract (each at a concentration of 0.1%) were added to guttation fluid, they all reversed the inhibition of Xcd-lux by the guttation bacteria, and peptone was the most efficacious compound (Fig.6). Then, the cell suspensions were mixed at different ratios to prepare four replicates (1:2:1:2:1, 2:1:2:1:2, 1:2:2:1:2, and 2:1:1:2:1 for mixtures consisting of five strains; 1:2:1:2, 2:1:2:1, 1:2:2:1, and 2:1:1:2 for mixture E consisting of only four strains), and 15 μl of each mixture was inoculated into 1.47 ml of filter-sterilized guttation fluid from cultivar Marian Seefurth. dieffenbachiae []), is an important disease in Hawaii, as well as other tropical and subtropical regions.An outbreak of bacterial blight in the 1980s had a severe impact on Hawaii’s local anthurium … The densities of Xcd-lux and total bacterial cells were determined 3 days (data not shown) and 7 and 14 days after inoculation. For each day, bars marked by the same letter are not significantly different (P = 0.01), as determined by the SNK test. Before using strain Xcd-lux for experiments, we confirmed that Tn4431 encoding the lux genes (20) was present in the strain by growing it and observing bioluminescence emissions from colonies on 523 medium (8) containing 50 μg of rifampin per ml and 10 μg of tetracycline per ml. The missing datum point was estimated by using a general linear model. The same principle may apply for the enhanced survival of Xcd-lux in guttation fluid containing peptone. 6). Images for nonwounded leaves are not shown. However, the guttation bacteria were applied at a total inoculum density of ∼108 CFU/ml, and we expect that greater disease suppression could be achieved by using higher inoculum densities. Effects of guttation bacteria on the ability of Xcd-lux to infect anthurium leaves.Cultivar Marian Seefurth plants were used in the experiment performed to determine the effects of guttation bacteria on the ability of Xcd-lux to infect anthurium leaves. The images represent the leaves analyzed in the first trial, which had the disease severity indices closest to the average values. Effects of some organic and mineral nutrients on inhibition of Xcd-lux by guttation bacteria.Sterilized 10%d-glucose, 10% peptone, and 10% yeast extract solutions were prepared by autoclaving, and 15 μl of each solution was added to 1.455 ml of filter-sterilized guttation fluid from cultivar Marian Seefurth in a test tube (four replicates per treatment). The inhibitory effects of mixture C (containing five other strains obtained from cultivar Marian Seefurth) and mixture F (containing five strains obtained from cultivars Ellison Onizuka and Nitta) were similar to the inhibitory effects of mixture A. This research was supported by the U. S. Department of Agriculture Special Grants Program for Tropical and Subtropical Agricultural Research (agreement no. Chemical control of bacterial blight of anthurium using commercial agricultural chemicals and other antibacterial agents was ineffective. This indicated that there would be no bacterial blight re-infection even if old pots were used immediately even without … ASM journals are the most prominent publications in the field, delivering up-to-date and authoritative coverage of both basic and clinical microbiology. Symptoms: The first visible symptoms are yellowed (chlorotic), water-soaked lesions along the leaf margins that grow rapidly to form dead (necrotic) V-shaped lesions characteristic of this disease (Figure 3). At 7 days after inoculation, the size of the population of Xcd-lux in the guttation fluid containing peptone (in the presence of guttation bacteria) was significantly greater (P = 0.01) than the size of the population in the absence of guttation bacteria (in the absence of additional nutrients). The size of the initial population of Xcd-lux was determined by using four additional tubes containing guttation fluids from cultivar Marian Seefurth. The plants were removed from the bags at night and placed in a glasshouse to allow slow drying of the leaves. The test tubes were covered with caps, sealed with Parafilm, and incubated at 28°C (without shaking) for 7 days. Notably, only the mixture containing the five guttation bacteria was inhibitory to X. campestris pv. Contact. The estimated size of the initial inoculum of Xcd-lux was 6.69 ± 0.08 log CFU/ml (mean of seven observations). Various epiphytic bacteria have been used for biological control of fire blight or frost injury (10, 13, 14, 29, 30). Management is the only avenue. Mixture E was the least inhibitory of the six bacterial mixtures tested, although it consisted of four strains that were isolated from an inhibitory guttation fluid from cultivar Marian Seefurth. This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. A recent report that bacterial blight occurs in The Netherlands and that the pathogen was isolated from propagative materials en route from The Netherlands to India (19) indicates that the disease is not restricted to tropical and subtropical regions. The next day, the plants were arranged in a complete randomized design in the glasshouse. An equivalent amount of the nonfiltered guttation fluid was placed in a second tube. These results suggest that certain susceptible cultivars may occasionally harbor a bacterial community that is inhibitory to the pathogen. (D) Xcd-lux inoculated with GUT5. Honolulu (HI): University of Hawaii. dieffenbachiae has provided valuable information on the infection process in bacterial blight, especially during the latent systemic phase of infection (4). It’s important to keep the leaves dry in plants susceptible to bacterial diseases – like anthurium. This bacterial community has potential for biological control of anthurium blight. session so others can sign in. CAB Direct is the most thorough and extensive source of reference in the applied life sciences, CAB Direct and Ochrobactrum sp. Copper fungicides are amongst the most common for the treatment of bacterial blight. The plants were kept wet for 4 h by sealing the bags. Sampling day was considered the repeated measurement in factorial designs. Inhibitory effects of various bacterial mixtures on growth of Xcd-lux in filter-sterilized guttation fluid.Bacteria isolated from inhibitory guttation fluids from various cultivars in the experiment described above were mixed in different combinations and coinoculated along with Xcd-lux into filter-sterilized guttation fluids. Fungal and bacterial diseases, including bacterial blight, root rot, stem rot, and fungal or bacterial leaf spots, are the biggest problem for anthuriums. However, susceptible cultivars are also in high demand because of their desirable flower shapes and colors. In conclusion, the newly isolated B. amyloliquefaciens B014 is a promising candidate as a biological agent to control bacterial blight caused by XAD, particularly in the Anthurium plant. … When the strain mixture was applied directly to wounds created on the leaf margins, the pathogen failed to invade through the wounds. Below these five bacterial strains are referred to guttation bacteria. Effects of guttation bacteria on growth and survival of Xcd-lux in filter-sterilized guttation fluids. Pathogen and culture media.Bioluminescent strain V108LRUH1 of X. campestris pv. It is unlikely that the inhibition of Xcd-lux was caused by production of antibiotics or other toxic agents by resident bacteria, because none of the filter-sterilized guttation fluid samples was as inhibitory as nonfiltered guttation fluids containing bacterial communities were. The sizes of populations of Xcd-lux in sterile distilled water and phosphate buffer determined 15 days after inoculation were 6.41 and 5.91 log CFU/ml, respectively. The pH values of the guttation fluid samples were determined after the last sample was collected by using pH indicator strips (range, pH 4.5 to 10.0, with 0.5-pH unit increments; Baxter Scientific Products, McGaw Park, Ill.). FIND ME AT:https://www.instagram.com/plantmeashleyhttps://www.etsy.com/shop/plantmeashleyHey! Getting foliage wet during watering is a major contributor to leaf blight. In nonfiltered guttation fluids, in contrast, the sizes of the Xcd-lux populations declined to different levels depending on the cultivar. Role of indigenous leaf-inhabiting bacteria in suppression of anthurium blight. This fact helps explain why infections occasionally do not occur in some susceptible plants even after a large inoculum of the pathogen is applied to the leaves. 4). For each incubation time, bars marked by the same letter were not significantly different (P = 0.01), as determined by the SNK test. The mixture containing the five guttation bacteria was also better than the individual strains in suppressing leaf infection by Xcd-lux when it was spray inoculated onto the foliage of anthurium plants (4a). Mixture A consisted of the five guttation bacteria (GUT3, GUT4, GUT5, GUT6, and GUT9). Each bacterial strain was grown for 2 days at 28°C on YDC medium plates, the cells were suspended in sterile phosphate buffer, and the concentration was adjusted to an optical density at 600 nm of 0.25 (equivalent to ∼3.0 × 108 to 4.0 × 108 CFU/ml). It is known that there is competition between bacterial species that inhabit the same ecological niche (29, 30) and between two nearly isogenic species (6, 11, 12). These plants, wh ich belon g to the same plant family (Araceae) are tolerant to low humidity and can be easily grown in a potting medium … (C) Xcd-lux inoculated with GUT4. Xanthomonas blight on anthuriums is caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. Negative images of bioluminescence emission from infected leaves were scanned with a computer and converted to positive images by using Adobe Photoshop (Adobe Systems Inc., Mountain View, Calif.). using 16S rRNA gene sequencing. Equal volumes of the five cell suspensions were mixed, and the mixture was sprayed onto the foliage of 20 plants until runoff occurred. The effect of the five inhibitory strains on reducing disease in susceptible anthurium plants was tested by using a bioluminescent strain ofX. When Xcd-lux was inoculated into filter-sterilized guttation fluids from cultivar Marian Seefurth in which the mixture of five strains or individual indigenous strains had been grown for 14 days before the preparation was filter sterilized, the size of the Xcd-lux population dropped from the initial level (7.09 ± 0.05 log CFU/ml) only to 6.73 ± 0.20 log CFU/ml (for the mixture) or 7.04 ± 0.07 log CFU/ml (for GUT5) after 7 days of incubation. One drop of inoculum containing the mixture of the five guttation bacteria (concentration of each strain, ∼2.0 × 108 to 3.0 × 108 CFU/ml) was applied directly to each wound with a pipette. The resulting solution was serially diluted (10-fold) and plated onto PGM containing 50 μg of rifampin per ml, 10 μg of tetracycline per ml, and 100 μg of cycloheximide per ml. Two controls were prepared as described above, and the densities of Xcd-lux and total bacterial cells were determined 3, 7, and 14 days after inoculation. CAB Direct provides A modified triphenyltetrazolium chloride (TZC) medium (16) supplemented with 100 μg of cycloheximide per ml was used to determine the total bacterial population sizes. Growing anthuriums under cool and shaded conditions slows the progression of the disease. The pathogen, X. campestris pv. The resulting plates were incubated at 28°C for 3 days to allow individual bacterial colonies to develop, and 10 dominant strains were isolated and transferred to YDC and TZC media. Similar results were obtained in the second trial of this experiment. Solutions containing 10 mM CaCl2, 10 mM MgCl2, and 10 mM EDTA (ferric sodium salt) (Fe-EDTA) were filter sterilized, and 15 μl of each solution was added to 1.455 ml of filter-sterilized guttation fluid from cultivar Marian Seefurth (four replicates per treatment). Spraying guttation bacteria onto intact leaves reduced the disease severity index to approximately two-thirds the value obtained for nontreated leaves by day 41 (Fig. Methods of preventing frost injury caused by epiphytic ice-nucleation-active bacteria. Addition of glucose, peptone, or yeast extract (each at a concentration of 0.1%) to the guttation fluids reversed the inhibition, suggesting that competition for organic nutrients is involved in the inhibition observed in the guttation fluids. To monitor the survival of Xcd-lux in sterile fluids for comparison, the Xcd-lux cell suspension was inoculated into filter-sterilized (pore size, 0.2 μm; Supor Acrodisc 25; Gelman Sciences, Ann Arbor, Mich.) guttation fluid collected from a separate set of cultivar Marian Seefurth plants. Survival of Xcd-lux in filter-sterilized guttation fluid inoculated with various mixtures of bacterial strains isolated from guttation fluids from several anthurium cultivars. (A) Xcd-lux inoculated alone. The experiment consisted of the following four treatments (10 plants per treatment, one leaf per plant): leaves that were treated with bacteria and wounded (by notching at four sites around the leaf margin); leaves that were not treated but were wounded; leaves that were treated with bacteria and not wounded; and leaves that were not treated and not wounded. The estimated size of the initial inoculum of Xcd-lux was 6.41 ± 0.09 log CFU/ml (mean of eight observations). In a similar test, the effects of three mineral nutrients on inhibition of Xcd-lux by the guttation bacteria were determined. There are over 13,661,000 records available in CAB Direct | Last updated on December 24, 2020. (F) Xcd-lux inoculated with GUT9. The first is changing how they are watered. Isabelle ROBENE, Scientific officer. The pathogen was spray inoculated onto the leaves about 6 h later. Mixture E consisted of four strains isolated from a different guttation fluid sample from Marian Seefurth. dieffenbachiae [27]), is an important disease in Hawaii, as well as other tropical and subtropical regions. 5). Unlike the tests described above, guttation fluid was repeatedly collected from the same leaf for 2 to 4 consecutive days by placing a new plastic bag onto the leaf each day. Bacterial blight of anthurium (Anthurium andraeanum Lind. The densities of Xcd-lux and total bacterial cells were determined 3 days (data not shown) and 7 and 14 days after inoculation. Studies were focused on improving the efficacy of the BCAs with carbon sources that sustain beneficial bacterial populations on plant surfaces without stimulating pathogen growth. Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. In addition, neither CaCl2 nor MgCl2 reversed the inhibition. Sterile distilled water was applied to nontreated plants. Thus, it may be possible to improve the efficacy of a mixture by identifying the trivial strains in the mixture and replacing them with beneficial species. The differences in the initial sizes of the populations of all bacteria were not significant for cultivars, as determined by the SNK test. For all cultivars, the sizes of the populations of Xcd-lux determined 7 and 15 days after inoculation were significantly smaller (P = 0.01) in the nonfiltered guttation fluids than in the filter-sterilized guttation fluids (Fig.4). Guevara YM, Debrot EC (1985) Bacterial blight of anthurium in Venezuela. The white background illumination is bioluminescence from Xcd-lux recorded on X-ray film. To be effective, it needs to have at least 50% copper oxychloride and applications need to be done early in the season before the disease develops. The mechanism of disease suppression by guttation bacteria is not known. Bars marked by the same letter were not significantly different (P = 0.01), as determined by the SNK test. Disease incidence was approximately 10% at the time of inspection. A promising disinfesting treatment to assure that anthurium cuttings are free of burrowing nematode and bacterial blight is heat application. Two milliliters of filter-sterilized guttation fluid collected from cultivar Marian Seefurth plants was inoculated with a cell suspension of each bacterial strain or a mixture of the five strains (two replicates per strain) and incubated at 28°C as described above.
