Fireblight in Romania

Fireblight (due to the EPPO A2 quarantine pest Erwinia amylovora) was first observed in Romania in 1992-08 near Braila, and then in the pear collection of the Fruit Research Institute in Pitesti-Maracineni. Numerous trees of many cultivars were affected.  A detailed article will appear shortly in Bulletin OEPP/EPPO Bulletin. The disease had probably been present already for one year.
