EPPO PRA for 'Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum' in Solanaceae

Description

Both the EPPO PRA according to Standard PM 5/3  and the report of the PRA are available.


Ca. L. solanacearum and B. cockerelli are pests of potato, tomato and Capsicum which are important crops in the PRA area. Severe damage has been noted in North America and in New-Zealand where outbreaks have occurred. 7 In the case of introduction of Ca. L. solanacearum together with B. cockerelli, they would have a high probability of establishment wherever host plants are present. Eradication or containment would be difficult due to fact that they might not be detected before they have already established and caused damage. Producers will have to change their pest management practice to cope with these new pests.
