Bacterial blossom blight is one of the most important diseases of kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa). The disease occurs during flowering in the late May and disease outbreaks associated with rainfall during the flowering season have resulted in a severe reduction in kiwifruit production. The causal organism isolated from diseased blossoms of kiwifruits was identified as Pseudomonas syringae pv, syringae based on the physiological and biochemical characteristics and pathogenicity test. Dead fruit stalks, dead pruned twigs, fallen leaves and soils mainly provided P. syringae pv. syringae with overwintering places in the kiwifruit orchards, and the inocula also overwintered on buds, trunks, branches, and twigs on the kiwifruit trees. Among the overwintering places, the incula were detected in the highest frequencies from dead fruit stalks. The population density of P. syringae pv. syringae was speculated to be over 1 × 104 cfu/ml for the bacterial infection, and the optimum temperature for the bacterial growth ranged 20 to 25°C. The highest population density of P. syringae pv. syringae on the overwintering places was detected in May and June when the daily average temperature coincided with the optimum temperature for bacterial growth of P. syringae pv. syringae.
Key Words: Blossom blight, Kiwifruit, Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae
