My research investigated management strategies for bacterial rots of onion, particularly Pantoea ananatis and Pantoea agglomerans, which are emerging pathogens that cause center rot of onion. I studied how nitrogen fertilization timing and application rate affected bacterial disease incidence and marketable yield. I also evaluated the susceptibility of onion cultivars to center rot and the efficacy of transplant treatments to manage bacterial pathogens that colonize the plant surface.
