Update on the presence of Xanthomonas fragariae in Italy
Studies carried out in Italy in spring, summer and autumn 1993, have shown that Xanthomonas fragariae (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) is now present in the major regions producing strawberry: Lazio, Campania, Emilia-Romagna and Sicilia. The identification has been achieved by means of biochemical and physiological test, differential growth on selective media and pathogenicity tests.
