Bacterial leaf streak of barley (Xanthomonas translucens pv. translucens – EPPO A2 quarantine pest) was observed in the south-eastern, central and western regions of Iran. The disease was even present in the irrigated barley fields of the driest areas. The EPPO Secretariat had previously no data on this bacterium in Iran.
