Papaya, short lived dreams.

Dreams of good harvest had been short lived with papaya lately.  Leaves turned yellow over a week or two, and the whole papaya tree became weak and died within two weeks.  I guess it's erwinia papayae   a bacterial pathogen, at work. It's also known as bacterial crown rot.
