In June 2017, plants were observed in a commercial lentil (Lens culinaris Medikus) field in Central South Dakota with brown, circular lesions on the foliage leaves that had dried, torn centers resembling “shot holes.” The pathogen was confirmed to be Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae. This is the first known report of bacterial blight caused by P. syringae pv. syringae on lentil anywhere lentils are grown.
