First finding of Globodera pallida and G. rostochiensis in Turkey

Surveys were carried out in 1990 and 1992 in 4 provinces of Central Anatolia, Turkey, on important potato nematodes. Globodera pallida and G. rostochiensis (both EPPO A2 quarantine pests) were detected in one potato field in Dörtivan county, Bolu Province (north-west of Ankara). Quarantine measures were taken to prevent any further spread of potato cyst nematodes from the infected field. This is the first report of Globodera pallida and G. rostochiensis in Turkey. The status of G. rostochiensis and G. pallida in Turkey can be described as: Present: only in one location, under eradication.
