We’ve selected a few of the latest new geographic, host and species records for plant pests and diseases from CAB Abstracts. Records this fortnight include the first report of the root knot nematode, Meloidogyne inornata, on common bean in Brazil’s Paraná State, Glyphosate-resistant Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) on rice paddy levees in Japan and the first report of Fusarium proliferatum causing garlic bulb rots in Mexico.
