First report of tomato bacterial speck caused by Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato in Tunisia

Abstract : In spring 2016, severe spots were observed on nearly all tomato plants cvs. Amal, Kaouther and Malinche grown in several greenhouses in the region of Teboulba, on the eastern coast of Tunisia. Affected plants presented 1 to 5 mm, angular, necrotic spots surrounded by a yellow halo on young and older leaves (Fig. 1). When numerous lesions occurred on a single leaflet, they coalesced and a portion or the entire leaflet turned necrotic and died. Necrotic lesions were also observed on petioles, peduncles and stems of diseased plants. In some cases, a brown-black colouration was observed along the entire stem (Fig. 2). Similar necrotic symptoms were observed during spring 2017 on tomato seedlings grown in nurseries in the Kairouan governorate, in the centre of Tunisia.
