Description:A seed borne bacterial disease that causes yellowing and stunting of seedlings growing from infected seed. Small angular spots with a wide yellow green halo appear on leaves in cool weather. In warm weather the halo may not form. Wilting and stunting occur as the bacteria invade the vascular system. On pods greasy or water soaked spots occur and on stems long, green, greasy spots form. A whitish slime may ooze from lesions in humid conditions
Species Affected:Bean, French Bean and other Phaseolus and legume species.
