Potato stems showing blackleg or wilting were collected during 2003-2004 and the erwinias were isolated based on cavity forming on pectate-containing media followed by anaerobic growth test. Bacteri were also isolated from rotting tubers and from water samples collected from rivers in southern and western Finland.
