Comments
EPPO Reporting Service (1997/111) : R. solanacearum has never occurred in Slovenia. Intense testing since first reports in western results has given consistently negative results.

EPPO Reporting Service (2001/082) : systematic surveys since 1996. Only detected in 4 consignments of imported ware potatoes over period 1996/1999. In December 2000, one sample of domestic ware potatoes found infected. Derived from imported seed potatoes, and all growers having used the same batch were investigated. No further cases were found. Measures prescribed by the EU Control Directive applied.

From NPPO (2017): R. solanacearum has been eradicated.
