Lie, B. van Mierlo, B. Lemaga, K. Sharma, P.C. Out of 54 bacteria isolates procured from different sources or isolated from potato rhizosphere soil, only three Bacillus spp., i.e., B. subtilis (S 1 , B5), B. cereus (B4) and an avirulent strains of P. solanacearum (BCA) exhibited antagonism against the bacterial wilt pathogen both under culture and glasshouse conditions. Biology and epidemiology of bacterial wilt caused by Pseudomonas solanacearum. Bacterial wilt is a devastating disease in South Africa and causes financial losses for producers of a number of crops like potato, tomato, pepper, and tobacco (Swanepoel, 1988).

Race 1 is associated with bacterial wilt in tomato, potato and other solanaceous hosts in the U.S. Potato bacterial wilt (PBW) caused by Ralstonia solanacearum is one of the major constraints to potato production in Rwanda and no single method effectively controls the disease. Potato is one of the most important food crops for smallholder farmers in the Ethiopian highlands. No single management strategy e˚ectively prevents losses caused by bacterial wilt. It also highlights the potential of host resistance as an important component of integrated management of bacterial wilt in Kenya. In Ethiopia, however, much research has not been done for the management of bacterial wilt disease except identification of bacteria and screening of biological control agents and use of resistant varieties. Bacterial wilt of tomato is caused by either race 1 or race 3 of R. solanacearum and, rarely, by race 2. Diagnosis of management of bacterial wilt and late blight in potato in Ethiopia: A systems thinking perspective.
