          Abstract

          Rhizogenic Agrobacterium strains are the causative agent of hairy root disease (HRD), an increasing problem in the hydroponic cultivation of tomato and cucumber in Europe. A previous study has demonstrated that different lineages of rhizogenic agrobacteria are able to form biofilms. Although hydrogen peroxide (H2 O2 ) is a frequently used biocide in hydroponic systems, until now its effectiveness to remove rhizogenic agrobacteria has not been unequivocally demonstrated. Therefore, the main objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of H2 O2 in controlling Agrobacterium-containing biofilms.
