In the period 1990-2005, the research of the most important bacterialdiseases that parasite different cultures in Republic of Macedonia, showed thatthe most important are: for fruit trees - Erwinia amylovora, especially at pears(Pyrus communis), apples (Malus sylvestris) and quinces (Cydonia oblonga);then Erwinia carotovora pv. carotovora, Xanthomonas campestris pv.vesicatoria and Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae for peppers (Capsicumanuum). The most destructive for tomatoes (Lucopersicon esculentum) are:Clavibacter michiganensis ssp. michiganensis, Xanthomonas campestris pv.vesicatoria, Pseudomonas viridiflava and Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato.Rhizobium radiobacter (Sin. Agrobacterium tumefaciens) and stolbur forgrapevine (Vitis vinifera) and Pseudomonas syringae pv. lachrimans forcucumbers (Cucumis sativus). Most of these diseases appear every year withdifferent intensity, depending on the climate conditions, making more or lessdamages in vegetable and fruit production. For example, pepper damages costby X.c. pv. vesictoria in 1995, when the yield was decreased for 70% (Mitrevand Spasov, 1995).
