Global Perspectives on the Health of Seeds and Plant by Maria Lodovica Gullino, Gary Munkvold

By Maria Lodovica Gullino, Gary Munkvold

This quantity maintains the sequence of books on “Plant Pathology within the twenty first Century”, and comprises the papers given on the 10th overseas Congress of Plant Pathology (ICPP 2013) held in Beijing, August 25-30, 2013 relating seed health.

Many pathogens are transmitted all through contaminated seeds and propagation fabric .The incontrovertible fact that propagation fabric creation is particularly a lot targeted in few institutions, favors the fast unfold of recent illnesses all through seed commercialization. This phenomenon is particularly a lot speeded up in a globalized system.

The booklet covers case stories of infection, points of detection and analysis in addition to affliction administration options, with specified emphasis in the direction of seed remedies with unconventional products.

This publication can be worthwhile for all plant pathologists in addition to scholars in complicated courses.

Allii, Mediterranean countries were considered more at risk than temperate countries, and northern countries were not considered at risk. Some cultural practices favour the infection of crops and spread of the pest including overhead irrigation which is common in several EPPO countries. During the assessment of potential economic consequences it was noted that the bacterium can cause significant yield losses and high control costs when conditions are suitable. It negatively affects bulb size because of the destruction of the foliage.

The EPPO Secretariat considers that these initiatives and future plans will aid the optimization of diagnostic activities in laboratories in the EPPO region. 1 Development of Standards on Inspection and Official Control Standards on Inspection EPPO has initiated the development of Standards providing guidance on methods to be followed for performing inspections of commodities moving in trade, or surveys of quarantine pests. The first Standards were adopted in the 1980s, however, this activity has been dormant for a number of years and was only reactivated in 2013.

To prevent entry or spread of dangerous pests within the EPPO region, the Organization has been given the task of identifying pests which should be recommended for regulation by its members. Consequently since the 1970s, EPPO has maintained a List of A1 and A2 pests recommended for regulation which currently contain more than 300 pests. The list distinguishes pests which are absent (A1) from the EPPO region from those which are locally present (A2). The World Trade Organization Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement requires that phytosanitary measures must be justified and commensurate to the risk, and measures adopted by countries to protect their territories from these pests should be technically justified.
