Tilletia indica is not present in Hungary

The Plant Protection Service of Hungary had been notified by the Phytosanitary inspectorate of Turkey that two consignments of wheat from Hungary were rejected because of the presence of Tilletia indica (EPPO A1 quarantine pest). The Hungarian Plant Protection Service has inspected all the storehouses on the places of production and loading sites, and no T. indica was found. Only one sample was found infected by T. foetida which is not a quarantine pest. The Hungarian authorities stressed that Hungary is free from T. indica.
