Abstract:

The isolation of R. solanacearum was carried out by streak plate method on TZC agar medium from bacterial wilted potato plant. The R. solanacearum was identified on the basis of different Morpho-biochemical characteristics. The colonies of test bacterium were appeared as, dull white or creamy colour, irregularly round fluidal colonies and opaque with light pink or red center on TZC agar medium. The R. solanacearum was Gram negative in reaction and positive for KOH solubility, acid production, starch hydrolysis, catalase test, production of hydrogen sulphide, Motility test and Casein hydrolysis test.
