Interceptions of Bursaphelenchus xylophilus in Finland
Finland has intercepted two consignments of wood chips (Pinus spp.) due to infestation by Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (EPPO A1 organism).
The consignments originated from the USA and were intercepted in January 1992.
This 'Early Warning Message' has been possible because the National Board of Agriculture of Finland sends automatically copies of its notifications of interception to EPPO!
This report of interception has also been available in INFOEPPO since 1992-01-31.
