Erwinia amylovora in ex-Yugoslavia

EPPO records on Erwinia amylovora (A2 quarantine pest) in Yugoslavia go back to 1991 before the division of the country. Since then, EPPO was informed that the bacterium occurs in Croatia (RS 96/004) but not in Slovenia, where it is included in the A1 quarantine list (despite the preliminary inclusion in the A2 list mentioned in RS 95/115). Referring back to the publication of Panic ; Arsenijenic (1993), the following additional details can be added for other countries of ex-Yugoslavia:

FYR of Macedonia: - present in eastern part in several districts
Bosnia ; Herzegovina: - present in the north (district of Bosanska Gradiska)
FR of Yugoslavia: - present in Serbia (north, west, south, Kosovo, Slavonia)
