Abstract In Western and Northern Europe, Dickeya species are causing increasingly severe economic losses in potato (Solanum tuberosum) crops. The costs of seed potato production resulting from Dickeya spp. infection are high due to rejection and declassification of seed tubers (Slawiak et al., 2009). Potato blackleg caused by Dickeya spp. is primarily a seed tuber-borne disease (Tsror et al., 2009). Symptoms including blackening of the stem base, wilting of plants and rotten seed tubers are observed. Recently, outbreaks of potato blackleg were recorded in Georgia on three cultivars, in Samtskhe-Javakheti region, Akhalkalaki district, in an area in excess of 100 hectares
