Abstract

The growth response of the biocontrol agent Pantoea agglomerans to changes in temperature was determined in vitro in nutrient yeast extract –sucrose medium. The minimum temperature at which P. agglomerans was able to grow was 4°C and the maximum temperature was 42°C. This study has defined the range of environmental condition (Temperature) over which the bacteria may be developed for biocontrol of post-harvest diseases.
