Eradication of Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae from Germany
In 2013, Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae (EPPO A2 List) was found in Germany for the first time (EPPO RS 2013/239). Infected Actinidia plants had been detected in a nursery in Bayern and in a garden centre in Schleswig-Holstein. Infected plants were destroyed and as the bacterium was not detected during surveys conducted in 2016, 2017 and 2018, the NPPO of Germany officially declared in July 2019 that the outbreak has been eradicated.
The pest status of Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae in Germany is officially declared as: Absent, pest eradicated.
