Bacterial blight, caused by P. syringae pv. coriandricola, is a major disease of coriander (Coriandrum sativum). The nature of this disease was studied by inoculating coriander plants with rifampicin-resistant P. syringae pv. coriandricola (strain 1088b). All inoculated plants showed disease symptoms and the level of mortality was significant. The pathogen was isolated from different parts of inoculated coriander plants, implying internal infection.
