On-line publications concerning seed-borne diseases
The FIS/ASSINSEL Secretariat has recently informed EPPO that 2 new publications concerning seed-borne diseases are now electronically available from its Web site: http://www.worldseed.org/ishis.htm
- A Pest Risk Analysis carried out by Prof. J. Pataky for FIS on Pantoea stewartii pv. stewartii (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) who recommends that the phytosanitary status or the requirements for the bacterium should be modified to take into account new scientific developments (e.g. low seed-transmission rate).
- ‘Seed Health Testing Methods Reference Manual’ published by the International Seed Health Initiative on Vegetable Crops. This manual includes test methods for 21 crop-disease combinations (including quarantine pests for Europe such as: Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. phaseoli on bean, Ditylenchus dipsaci on broad bean, Xanthomonas vesicatoria on capsicum and tomato).
