Xylella: what you need to know? A factsheet released online by the English National Farmers Union

The National Farmers Union (NFU) of England and Wales has recently released on its website a useful factsheet thought to keep the associate members aware of the big potential threat represented by Xylella fastidiosa to ornamental plant production and forestry landscape in the UK.

After attending a stakeholder meeting with the British Animal and Plant Health  Agency (APHA) and discussing with the European Nurserystock Association (ENA), NFU representatives were strongly encouraged to ensure a joined-up vision of plant health issues raised by Xylella fastidiosa across the country and the whole EU territory.

Besides making British readers familiar with basic information on the harmful pathogen, the NFU release, available at this link, illustrates several good practice measures to help prevent the spread of Xylella in the UK.
