Preliminary Studies on Biological Control of Potato Common Scab Caused by Streptomyces Sp.
Common scab of potatoes caused by several species of Streptomyces has been known for more than 120 years in Europe and America. Potato is the main host, but the disease also occurs on table beets, sugar-beets and radish. Recently, a Streptomyces sp. was reported to cause root tumors of melons in Japan (Kobayashi et al., 1987).
