Erwinia amylovora present in Turkey
It was reported at the 1991 Annual Meeting of the American Phytopathological Society in St. Louis (US) that Erwinia amylovora (EPPO A2 organism) has been present in Turkey since 1985.
Severe outbreaks of fireblight have been observed on pear and quince. Experiments on the control of the disease showed that a mixture of copper oxychloride and maneb gave a satisfactory result in controlling fireblight.
