ISLAM DIN KHAN and M.K. HINGORANI
Fifteen isolates of X. citri (Hasse) Dowson obtained from diseased material collected from different locations in India were compared in studies of their morphological, cultural, biochemical and pathogenic characteristics. The gelatin liquefaction test delimited the isolates into six strains. On the basis of virulence to Murraya exotica L. differentiation of the isolates into three groups or strains has been proposed.
