Advanced symptoms of Clavibacter infection in field-grown tomato appears as severe cankers on stem and dark brown-to-black lesions on leaf margins. Also, symptomatic plants show reddish-brown cavities in the stems and internal discoloration of vascular tissue. This pathogen is included on the quarantine list as a risky pest according the Mexican laws (SAGARPA). Occurrence of bacterial canker disease in San Quintin Valley is relevant because the potential spread of the pathogen by introduced tomato seedling represents a permanent risk to pathogen-free areas in the Peninsula of Baja California.
