Globodera rostochiensis is not present in Brazil

The presence of Globodera rostochiensis (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) in Brazil was reported in EPPO RS 95/132, on the basis of a publication on nematodes of quarantine importance for the European Union. However, the Brazilian authorities questioned this report and the authors of the book were unable to trace back the exact source of this record. Globodera rostochiensis should be considered as absent from Brazil.
