- ... This work identifies a compound able to inhibit Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri (citrus canker agent) growth in vitro and in vivo. First, we isolated bacteria from citrus leaf surfaces that were able to inhibit X. citri subsp. citri in vitro. Among the selected isolates, we focused on one with remarkable activity. The strain was characterized as Pseudomonas fluorescens after sequencing its 16S rDNA ...
