Xanthomonas citri pv. citri(XANTCI)
Distribution details in Georgia
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
It may be noted that X. citri was the object of very strict phytosanitary regulations in the USSR.
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.
