Status of Globodera rostochiensis in Hungary

G. rostochiensis occurs only in one isolated locality at which the infestation decreases year by year. Infestation was found in 1989 in one transit store-house, and rapid measures were taken to eliminate it. One consignment. of Hungarian·potatoes was refused by Czechoslovakia due to G. rostochiensis infestation - but the pest was not detected on retesting by the Hungarian authorities, in the consignment or on the production site. Surveys of potato-growing areas have become more severe in 1989 and no new infestations have been detected.
