Scientific Opinion on the risk to plant health posed by Xylella fastidiosa in the EU territory, with the identification and evaluation of risk reduction options
TLDR
The EFSA Panel on Plant Health conducted a pest risk assessment and an evaluation of risk reduction options for Xylella fastidiosa and recommends the continuation and intensification of research on the host range, epidemiology and control of the Apulian outbreak. Expand
Biological Control of Root-Knot Nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.): Microbes against the Pests
TLDR
The antagonistic activity of bacteria and fungi, with their advantages and limitations in biocontrol of root-knot nematodes are summarized. Expand
Risk assessment of soil-pest damage to grain maize in Europe within the framework of Integrated Pest Management
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the occurrence of risk factors may increase the risk of wireworm damage to maize crops, while the probability of damage to a field with no risk factors is always very low, leading to a significant reduction in soil insecticides use and a reduction in environmental impact. Expand
Scientific Opinion on the risk of Phyllosticta citricarpa (Guignardia citricarpa) for the EU territory with identification and evaluation of risk reduction options
TLDR
The Panel conducted a risk assessment of Phyllosticta citricarpa for the EU, finding that CBS epidemics are most likely to develop in EU citrus-growing areas in late summer to early autumn and in some locations also in late spring to early summer. Expand
Scientific Opinion on the risks to plant health posed by Bemisia tabaci species complex and viruses it transmits for the EU territory
TLDR
A pest risk assessment for Bemisia tabaci and the viruses it transmits, including an evaluation of risk reduction options and an assessment of the effectiveness of the special requirements linked to B. tabaci, found the plants for planting pathway being most significant and rated for entry of insects and viruses as likely and moderately likely, respectively.

Biological Control of Root-Knot Nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.): Microbes against the Pests / BIOTIČNO ZATIRANJE OGORČIC KORENINSKIH ŠIŠK (Meloidogyne spp.): MIKROORGANIZMI PROTI ŠKODLJIVCEM
TLDR
The antagonistic activity of bacteria and fungi, with their advantages and limitations in biocontrol of root-knot nematodes are summarized. Expand
Effect of Meloidogyne ethiopica parasitism on water management and physiological stress in tomato
TLDR
Root analyses revealed that plants had a very limited ability to mitigate the effects of the root-knot nematodes infestation by altering root growth, and root galls had a major influence on the hydraulic conductivity of theroot system, which was significantly reduced. Expand
Risk assessment of Gibberella circinata for the EU territory and identification and evaluation of risk management options
TLDR
The risk assessment indicates that, in parts of the European Union, there is risk of pitch canker affecting the host species (pine and Douglas-fir) and an integrated disease management approach, which combines appropriate nursery and silvicultural practices, should be used to reduce the impact of the disease.
