Note:

Crown gall (Agrobacterium tumefaciens) is a soil-borne pathogen that can survive in soil or inside plant as parasite. This pathogen can spread through rain, irrigation water, wind, insects, tools, and use of contaminated soil during propagation or planting. Detached galls that rest on the ground or in the soil are primary inoculum sources. As galls degrade and break down, infected tissue that sloughs off into the soil releases bacteria. Seed transmission is not reported in the literature. Seed absolutely free of soil and plant materials may be considered free of this pest. No evidence required for endorsing freedom from this pest. However, seeds containing traces of soil and other plant materials may require a crop inspection report or laboratory analysis for endorsing freedom from this pest.
