FAO/IPGRI Technical Guidelines for the safe movement of small- grain temperate cereals

FAO and IPGRI (International Plant Genetic Resources Institute, previously IBPGR) have recently issued technical guidelines for the safe movement of small-grain temperate cereals. These guidelines give information on diseases and pests of small-grain cereals (symptoms, host range, geographical distribution, transmission) and provide relevant data on treatments to be used in order to ensure safe movement of planting material of these crops.
So far, FAO/IBPGR have already published guidelines for the following crops: cocoa, Musa, edible aroids, yam, sweet potato, legumes, citrus, cassava, grapevine, vanilla, coconut, sugarcane and small fruits.
