Phytophthora ramorum eradicated from Sweden

In Sweden, Phytophthora ramorum (EPPO A2 List) has occasionally been found since the 2000s, but all cases have been subject to eradication measures. The last outbreak was detected in 2018 in a private garden (4 rhododendron plants) in the municipality of Klippan. Subsequent surveys conducted in Klippan did not detect P. ramorum, and since then no new detections have been made in Sweden.

The pest status of Phytophthora ramorum in Sweden is officially declared as: Absent, pest eradicated.
