Agrobacterium radiobacter K1026

Jump to navigationJump to search

Agrobacterium radiobacter strain K1026 is a microbial pesticide that can be used to treat germinating seeds or roots and stems of certain stone fruit (such as cherries and plums), nut trees, and ornamentals to protect them from crown gall disease. Products are approved for use in greenhouses and nurseries. EPA has approved the use of this pesticide until fall 2001 while it waits for additional data to more fully characterize the identity of the microbe.
