Pseudomonas coronafaciens is a Gram-negative bacterium that is pathogenic to several plant species. Following ribotypical analysis several pathovars of Pseudomonas syringae were incorporated into this species.[1][2]


  • Pseudomonas coronafaciens pv. atropurpurea is pathogenic on Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum).
  • Pseudomonas coronafaciens pv. coronafaciens causes halo blight on oat (Avena sativa).
  • Pseudomonas coronafaciens pv. garcae infects the coffee plant Coffea arabica.
  • Pseudomonas coronafaciens pv. oryzae is pathogenic on rice (Oryza sativa).
  • Pseudomonas coronafaciens pv. porri infects the leek (Allium ampeloprasum var. porrum).
  • Pseudomonas coronafaciens pv. striafaciens causes bacterial stripe blight on oat (Avena sativa).
  • Pseudomonas coronafaciens pv. zizaniae causes bacterial leaf streak on wild rice (Zizania aquatica).
