Interceptions in The Netherlands in 1989 and 1990
Some interesting interceptions took place in The Netherlands in 1989 and 1990:
- Several consignments of Marantaceae plantlets from Brazil were intercepted due to infestation by Radopholus similis as well as Aphelenchoides besseyi.
- One consignment of chrysanthemum from Thailand was intercepted due to infestation by Puccinia horiana.
- One consignment of Gladiolus flowers each from Italy and Spain were intercepted due to infestation by Uromyces transversalis.
This information, having reached the EPPO Secretariat only recently, has not been included in the internal EPPO summaries of intercepted consignments for 1989 and 1990.
