Xanthomonas campestris pv. Campestris - gram-negative non-spore-forming bacteria, in the form of rods with rounded ends. Obligate aerobes. Sizes 0.4-0.5x0.7-3.0 microns. They are located singly or in pairs, less often in chains. Capsules are available.

On agar - colonies are round, convex, smooth, shiny, initially light, later yellowish with an even edge, in the center of the crystal.

In broth - bacteria form turbidity, sediment and incomplete film in the form of a ring.

On the potato there is a convex stroke, smooth, oily-shiny, slimy, yellow, in the form of a slimy viscous mass.

Sources of infection are infected seeds, infected stalks (used to obtain seeds), infected plant debris, cabbage weeds. During the growing season, bacteria are carried by the wind, raindrops, insects, and slugs.

Reserves - weeds and cultivated species of the Cruciferous family (Crucíferae), in particular types of genera cabbage (Brássica), radish (Ráphanus), mustard (Sinápis) .

Typical symptoms:

  • on the cotyledons - brightening of the edges,
  • on adult plants - the edge of the leaf blade turns yellow, the damage zone has V-shaped outlines,
  • in the area of ​​yellowed tissue, the veins of the leaf blade turn black, forming a black mesh,
  • a cross-section of the petiole reveals browned or blackened vessels,
  • the affected areas turn dark brown over time and die off,
  • the lower leaves fall off, the heads of cabbage are crushed,
  • plants die, slow down growth and bend.

When examining the scar on the stem after removing the leaves, characteristic black rings of vascular bundles are visible. Symptoms gradually spread to the upper leaves. Chlorotic lesions appear on the latter.


Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris - distributed almost everywhere in the areas of cultivation and natural growth of various species of the Cruciferous family.


Bacteria Xanthomonascampestrispv.campestris isolated from plants with obvious signs of the disease - vascular bacteriosis of cruciferous crops. Incubation lasts 4–7 days at + 28 ° C. The grown colonies are subcultured on nutrient media.

Bacteria are identified using classical physiological, biochemical and molecular research methods (PCR). For Xanthomonascampestrispv.campestris, like other species of the genus Xanthomonas primary selection is carried out according to mucoid yellow growth of YDC and PSA colonies, reductioninitrates, negative reaction to oxidase, characteristic growth on SX agar.

To isolate bacteria of the genus Xanthomonas the following media are used:

  1. Potato-glucose agar, modified in the laboratory of bacterial diseases of VNIIF: 10.0 g / L - sucrose, 10.0 g / L - peptone, 5.0 g / L yeast extract, 0.5 g / L - Ca (NO3)2.4H2O, 2.0 g / l - glamic acid, 0.1 g / l - FeSO4.4H2O., 2.0 g / l - Na 2HPO4.12 H2O, 0.1 ml - 0.1% aqueous solution of gencial-violet, 20.0 g / l - agar.
  2. Wilbring's medium with boric acid: 5.0 g / l - peptone, 10.0 g / l - sucrose, 0.5 g / l - K2HPO4, 0.25 g / l - MgSO4.7H20, 0.75 g / l - boric acid, 20.0 g / l - agar.
  3. Modified XTS medium: 5.0 g / l - glucose, 23.0 g / l - nutrient agar (Difco), 0.1 ml - 0.1% aqueous solution of gentian violet.
  4. YDC medium: 10.0 g / l - yeast extract, 20.0 g / l - dextrose, 20.0 g / l - calcium carbonate (powder), 20.0 g / l - agar.

Species of the genus Xanthomonas form slimy pale yellow colonies.

Xanthomonas campestrispv.campestris develop at temperatures from 0 ° C to + 31 ° C, the optimum temperature is + 24 ° C - + 25 ° C. Bacteria die at + 47 ° C - + 48 ° C.

Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris - liquefy gelatin, milk is slowly curdled, and then peptonized, on glucose, maltose, lactose, manite, glycerin, gas and acid do not form, an idol, hydrogen sulphide and ammonia form, starch hydrolysis is carried out, nitrates are not reduced, cottonseed oil is destroyed.


Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris - the causative agent of the disease is vascular bacteriosis of cruciferous crops. The defeat is observed at all stages of development. The vital activity of the pathogen leads to a decrease in the qualitative and quantitative indicators of yield. Affected heads of cabbage contain 1.5 times less sugar and 11-17% less ascorbic acid than healthy ones.
