Abstract

Bacterial wilt, caused by the soil-borne pathogen Pseudomonas solanacearum E. F. Sm., causes major economic losses in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) production in many warm, humid regions of the world (6, 8). Selections of L. esculentum (GA 1565-2-4 BWT, GA 219-1-2 BWT and GA 1095-1-4 BWT) and of L. esculentum x L. pimpinellifolium (Jusl.) Mill. (GA 1405- 1-2 BWT), all possessing high tolerance levels to P. solanacearum, are jointly released by the ARS/USDA and the Univ. of Georgia.
