Victorian research the first line of defence for a threatening strawberry pathogen, Xanthomonas fragariae

This article is about Victorian research into strawberry pathogen, Xanthomonas fragariae. Signs and symptoms of X. fragariae include small water soaked lesions or spots on the underside of the leaves. The edges of new lesions may look ‘angular’ in shape. These symptoms can be very similar to other pathogens that affect strawberries, so how do we know if we have found this new pathogen? The answer is, we need experts and specialised diagnostics to find out for us.
