New additions to the EPPO Lists


In September 2008, the EPPO Council approved the addition of the following pests to the EPPO A2 List of pests recommended for regulation. In order to draw the attention of NPPOs to these newly added pests, they have also been placed on the EPPO Action List. The later has been completely redesigned to display management measures which are recommended to the EPPO member countries and brief descriptions of the areas endangered by these pests.

Addition to the A2 List (pests locally present in the EPPO region): 
    • Tetranychus evansi (Acari: Tetranychidae)
    • Xanthomonas axonopodis¬†pv. poinsettiicola
    • Eichhornia crassipes (Pontederiaceae)
    • Polygonum perfoliatum¬†(Polygonaceae)

For each individual pest, datasheets and distribution maps are being prepared and will be available in due course on the EPPO web site.
