New University of Kentucky Plant Pathology Extension publication: Bacterial canker of tomato

Lexington, Kentucky, USA
May 30, 2023

Bacterial canker is a potentially serious disease of tomato that can occur in commercial plantings and residential gardens. This infectious disease is capable of spreading rapidly, resulting in devastating losses. In addition, the pathogen can be difficult to eradicate once it has been introduced into a greenhouse, garden, or field.


This publication discusses how bacterial canker affects seedlings, established plants, and tomato fruit.  Information on cause, disease development, and management strategies for various production methods is also included.

Bacterial Canker of Tomato (PPFS-VG-06) is available online.
