Present studies were carried out to find the status of bacterial pathogens in different pomegranate growing areas of Himachal Pradesh.

Bacterium was isolated, then identified on its cultural, morphological and biochemical characters as Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. punicae (Vauterin). None of the cultivars were found resistant to foliar and fruit diseases of pomegranate.
