NAVARRETE MAYA, Rosa et al. Phytopathohenic bacteria in Seeds: Detection and Regulation. Rev. mex. fitopatol [online]. 2014, vol.32, n.2, pp.75-88. ISSN 2007-8080.

Nowadays, about 90 % of cultivated plants are propagated by seeds, which are the main source for bacteria survival due the prolonged longevity of them. Around the world seed-borne bacteria have an economic impact because could produce 100% losses even if there are a low percentage of transmission of them. Infected seeds can produce re-emerging diseases, movement of pathogens through continents and the disease introduction to new areas. The main focus for develop an integrated management program for bacterial diseases should be the seed health, as well national and international quarantines must be implemented. The knowledge of transmission characteristics of seed-borne bacteria, the bacteria of cereal and horticultural seeds, the seed-borne bacteria detection methods, and the actual regulation for exporting seeds are important.
