Update of Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae in Russia
A bacterial isolate from rice in Russia has been identified as Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (EPPO A1 quarantine pest) and reported by the Plant Protection Service from the Far Eastern provinces (Reporting Service 498, 1988-09). However, according to recent information, no cases of bacterial leaf blight disease have been reported in any part of Russia in recent years. The pathogen could possibly be considered 'found, but not established'.
