Rhizomania in Serbia (YU)
The EPPO Secretariat had previously a general record of beet necrotic yellow vein furovirus (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) in Yugoslavia. Later, data were obtained on the occurrence of rhizomania in Croatia and Slovenia. A CABI abstract (Review of Plant Pathology, 75(12), p 1107, (8283)) gives the indication that beet necrotic yellow vein furovirus is also present near Sremska Mitrovica (region of Belgrade), Serbia (YU).
