Pest Risk Analysis EU internal movement of true potato seed (TPS) of registered TPS varieties: probability of association of regulated pests and analysis of risk reduction options


Currently, seed potatoes are used as the main source of propagation material for potato production in the EU. However, several breeding companies are in the process of registering varieties propagated by botanical or true seeds (TPS varieties). Phytosanitary requirements are in place for EU internal movement of seed potatoes but there are currently no such requirements for TPS of official potato varieties. Therefore, the present PRA evaluated the probability of transmission of regulated pests via EU internal movement of TPS. The PRA identified and evaluated options to prevent such transmission. The PRA area was the EU.
