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 genetic diversity of Sugarcane bacilliform virus isolates infecting Saccharum in India, the occurrence of garlic rot (caused by Fusarium solani) during storage and the distribution of viruses infecting tomato and pepper in northern Benin.
