We detected Pseudomonas glycinea in lots of 500 soybean seeds by predisposing germinating seeds and seedlings to conditions favoring the formation of typical water-soaked lesions on seedling cotyledons. These conditions included the wounding of cotyledons of partly germinated seeds and the emergence of seedlings into water-saturated air.
