Abstract

Current study was conducted on in-vivo and in-vitro management of citrus canker disease through potential and cheap
antibiotics. Different antibiotics were assessed against canker disease. Under in-vivo experiment trees were randomly selected
and sprayed with antibiotics. Under in-vitro lemon fruits were treated with different antibiotics. The data was recorded on a
daily basis for the number and size of lesions developed on leaves, branches, and fruits. In-vivo effect of different antibiotics
showed that streptomycin had highest efficacy followed by pencilin-10, Penicilin-5 and zampicilin for leaves, branches, and
fruits. 15 days after application, while in case of 45 days after 1st spray and 15 days after 2nd spray, the same was increased in
Streptomycin, Pencilin-10, Pencilin-5 and zampicilin for leaves, branches, and fruits. However, the effect of different
antibiotics based on tree directions, results were non-significant.
