Bacterial Spot of Pepper
Zitter, Thomas A.
Except for virus diseases, bacterial spot is the most important disease affecting peppers in New York. A mild case of bacterial spot causes prominent necrotic spots on leaves; a severe case can cause premature leaf drop and spotting of stems and pods that results in unmarketable fruit. Like most bacterial dtseases, bactenal spot is difficult to control when frequent rains and moist conditions prevail.
