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 a new psylla pest reported on pear trees in Egypt,  the first report of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum‘ on pepper in Honduras and the first report of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum causing sclerotinia blight on peanut in northeastern China.
