Xanthomonas campestris is bacterial species that causes a variety of plant diseases, including "black rot" in cruciferous vegetables[1][2] and bacterial wilt of turfgrass.

It is also used in the commercial production of xanthan gum, a high-molecular-weight polysaccharide which has many important uses, especially in the food industry.

The former X. c. pv. citri, which causes citrus canker, was reclassified as X. axonopodis in 1995. In 2006, the species designations for X. c. pv. citri and X. c. pv. malvacearum were revised to xes. citri and these pathovars are now referred to as subspecies.
