Report of a Pest Risk Analysis Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner, 1808)


OVERALL CONCLUSION Helicoverpa armigera should be removed from Annex IAII as the prospects and efficacy of measures for continued exclusion are limited. The only plausible measure to protect glasshouses in northern EU countries is to make sure that EU trade of propagation material (especially Pelargonium and Chrysanthemum cuttings) is free from the pest. The current EU requirements provide sufficient protection.
