    Bacterial soft rot is a serious disease in potato ( Solanum tuberosum L.), causing rapid tuber tissue maceration and, consequently, marketable yield loss. Soft rot bacteria, including Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum ( Pbc), are favored by moist conditions, which are prevalent in...
