Xanthomonas citri pv. citri(XANTCI)

Distribution details in Georgia

Situation
Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 2006: Absent, invalid record
From CABI Disease map 011 (2006): Present, no details
Comments
This record included in the CABI map refers to a 1980 publication in Zashchita Rastenii, which describes citrus diseases in the then Georgian SSR. A bacterial blight is mentioned, but without reference to the scientific name X. citri, and must in fact refer to Pseudomonas syringae. So the record in Georgia should be considered erroneous.

It may be noted that X. citri was the object of very strict phytosanitary regulations in the USSR.
