Gure,
you can find a review of brown rot /bacterial wilt (Ralstonia solanacearum) control measures in the article
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti...
Algicide (3-[3-indolyl] butanoic acid), fumigants (metam sodium, 1,3-dichloropropene, and chloropicrin), and plant activators generating systemic resistance on host plant (validamycin A and validoxylamine) have been used to control brown rot/ bacterial wilt. But biocontrol (antagonistic bacteria) is probably the best in long-term plant protection.
