Fireblight foci in Puy-de-Dôme (FR)

In France, significant foci of fireblight, caused by Erwinia amylovora (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) were found in Puy-de-Dôme, in two communes (Blanzat and Sayat). Pear trees (cv. Packham's and Alexandrine Douillard) were severely affected, and symptoms were also observed on apple trees (especially on cv. Idared and Gloster). Some ornamentals such as pyracantha and cotoneaster were also infected.
