PRA for Keiferia lycopersicella
Both the PRA and the PRA report are available.
EWG met in 2011-09, PRA then reviewed in 2012. This PRA supported the addition of Keiferia lycopersicella to the EPPO A1 List in 2012.
Entry of the pest in the PRA area is rated as likely. The main risk is associated with imported tomato fruit that are handled in facilities close to places where tomatoes are grown. It should be noted that imports of tomato fruit from countries where K. lycopersicella occurs, although limited, have increased over the last 10 years (no import existed before 1999). However, the whole PRA area would be at risk of severe consequences in case of introduction of the pest, either in open field or in protected conditions. It therefore seems important to prevent introduction of K. lycopersicella.
