Abstract

The objective of this study was to use microbial antagonists, alone and in combination with the Novartis resistance inducing chemical Actigard, as a means of controlling bacterial speck of tomato and bacterial spot of pepper and tomato. The study results indicate that micobial antagonists in combination with chemical inducers of resistance, such as Actigard, hold tremendous promise as a viable alternative to copper for the control of bacterial pathogens of tomato and pepper.
