Tentative EPPO Distribution List for peach latent mosaic viroid
Due to the new records of peach latent mosaic viroid in several countries (see EPPO RS/175 ; 176): the following distribution list can be proposed. As further studies are needed on this pathogen to clarify its quarantine status, this list is only an interim one which tries to take into account the fact that peach yellow mosaic disease is due to peach latent mosaic viroid and that peach mosaic disease is due to another pathogen.
