(A) Symptoms in watermelon leaves after infiltration with 104 cfu/ml of each indicated isolate at 6 days after inoculation (dai). (B) The disease severity at 6 dai that was scored according to disease index scale in (n = 4). (C) Bacterial growth in the watermelon leaves. Y-axis indicates the average of Log10cfu/cm2 in the infected watermelon leaves. Bars represent the standard error (n = 9; 9 leaf discs/treatment) and the letters on top of error bars show results from Duncan’s multiple range test (P < 0.05).
