Injury to tobacco leaves by water-soaking



Injury to tobacco leaves by water-soaking



Phytopath 29(10): 884-890



Tobacco leaves, kept water-soaked for 24 or 48 hrs. (the time claimed to be necessary to produce epidemic wildfire and blackfire, if inoculated with the respective organisms) are likely to show extensive injury either at the end of the period of water soaking or during the next few days, in the absence of infection. If the waternsoaked tissues are inoculated the injury resulting bears no resemblance to blackfire field injury as it occurs on maturing dark tobacco. Water-soaking appears to play little if any part in blackfire (Bacterium tabacum) outbreaks as they occur on maturing dark tobacco in Kentucky.
