Stenocarpella maydis no longer occurs in Austria

In Austria, Stenocarpella maydis (EPPO A2 List) was detected once in 1993 in maize crops (Zea mays) grown from old imported seed lots. Since this isolated finding, S. maydis has never been found again. Between 2011 and 2013, 43 samples were specifically tested for S.;maydis and the fungus was not detected. The NPPO of Austria considers that this fungus no longer occurs on its territory.
The pest status of Stenocarpella maydis in Austria is officially declared as: Absent.
