Alishewanella agri BL06T (= KCTC 22400T = JCM 15597T) was isolated from landfill soil in Pohang, South Korea. A. agri showed the ability to degrade pectin, a structural heteropolysaccharide present in the cell wall of plants. Here we report the genome sequence of Alishewanella agri BL06T, the second sequenced strain in the genus Alishewanella.
