Globodera pallida occurs in Bulgaria

In Bulgaria, Globodera pallida (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) was found for the first time in 1992, in five potato-growing regions. Studies were carried out in two of these regions and G. pallida was found in only 3 farms, in mixed populations with G. rostochiensis. Studies showed that the pathotype present is Pa3. The EPPO Secretariat had previously no data on the occurrence of G. pallida in Bulgaria.
