Walnut blight and its causes

November 2006
Agroforestry News;Nov2006, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p5
This article provides information on Walnut blight. Walnut blight or Xanthomonas campestris pv. juglandis is a serious walnut disease. It can destroy up to 80 percent of the yield of walnut orchard. This happens when the nuts react to a bacterial attack, causing it to drop before reaching maturity. Traditional treatments are also provided including soil factors that increase severity of walnut fruit drop due to walnut blight.

    Gram-negative plant pathogenic bacteria possess a type III secretion system (T3SS) to inject bacterial proteins, called type III effectors (T3Es), into host cells through a specialized syringe structure. T3Es are virulence factors that can suppress plant immunity but they can also conversely be...
