Express PRA for Liberibacter crescens


The bacterium Liberibacter crescens that presumably is native to Costa Rica does not yet occur in Germany and the EU. Up to now it is neither listed in the Annexes of Dir. 2000/29/EC nor at EPPO. Liberibacter crescens infests papaya. Up to now no further host plants are known. Nevertheless, the infestation of other plants cannot be excluded
