Rhizome rot or tip over disease of banana has been occurring in serious form and affecting the yield wherever bananas are being cultivated. The morphological characteristics of the eighteen isolates of the bacterium revealed that cells were rod shaped, occurred singly, Gram negative and peritrichously flagellated. The pathogen was identified on the basis of cultural, morphological and biochemical characteristics and its pathogenicity in banana was proved using Koch’s postulates. The identity of the pathogen was also confirmed by the manifestation of characteristic water soaked, necrotic lesion on tobacco leaves.

Keywords: Pathogenicity test, Hypersensitive reaction, Erwinia chrysanthemi.
