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 records of plant parasitic nematodes on cassava cultivated in the Brazilian Amazon, the first record of dragon fruit anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum truncatum in China and a new threat to potato production in Serbia.
