Quenching of the pectinolytic activity of Er. carotovora by ginger rhizosphere strains. The ability of GG2, GG4 and Se14 to reduce Er. carotovora-mediated soft rot in potato tuber tissues in co-culture was compared with the parent Erwinia strain in monoculture and, as negative controls, either the AHL-negative Er. carotovora mutant PNP22 or saline.
