Frequently, diseases occur in the bean crop, including bacterial diseases, common bacterial blight
(Xanthomonas axonopodis pv.
These genes may be involved in elicitor triggered immunity (ETI) as 13 NBS/LRR domain containing genes related to bacterial blight
resistance protein XA26, probable LRR receptor-like serine/threonine-protein kinase At3g47570 and LRR were also found in this QTL These genes are from Class 4 R-genes as they constitute genes with protein kinase domains and LRR repeats.
Response to occurring field diseases, specifically angular leaf spot (ALS), common bacterial blight
(CBB) and bean common mosaic virus (BCMV) was assessed using a CIAT disease evaluation scale of 1-9 [24, 25].
Among these, the most common examples are the strains with plant growth promoting activity to be used as biofertilizer; strains for bio-remediation of heavy-metals polluted soils/water systems; strains useful in food industry; pathogenic strains of bacterial blight
from rice ecology and citrus canker; and other extremophilic (i.e.
The latter, which is new in Mount Kenya region where most of the countrys Arabica coffee is grown, is a bacterial blight
disease, which is contagious.
The most common foliar diseases are anthracnose, caused by the fungus Colletotrichum gloeosporioides Penz., cladosporiosis, caused by the fungus Cladosporium herbarum Link., bacterial blight
, caused by the bacterium Xanthomonas axonopodis pv.
Symptoms: Small, pale-green blister-like spots on leaves that cause wilting.
However, PB1 is sensitive to several biotic stresses such as diseases (bacterial blight
, blast, sheath blight, and bakanae) and pests (brown plant hopper) and also to abiotic stresses, such as soil salinity and drought.
