Early Diagnosis Is Key To Keeping A Garden Healthy.
Bacterial diseases in plants may affect stems, leaves, roots, or be carried internally without external symptoms. They can cause a variety of symptoms including cankers, leaf spots, overgrowths, scabs, wilts, and others. These symptoms can be extremely noticeable and recognizable, but can also be difficult to spot and diagnose. Bacterial infections move from plant to plant quickly, which is why catching the infection early on is important for treatment. It is also imperative that tools be cleaned thoroughly after use on any infected plants as tools can serve as a vector for disease.
