Xanthomonas vesicatoria is a member of the species complex associated with tomato bacterial spot. New and specific primers for X. vesicatoria were developed and validated. The primers were highly specific and detection was positive using purified bacterial DNA, bacterial suspensions and foliar lesions. These primers represent an additional tool for detection and identification of one of the species involved in this important disease complex.
