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 myrothecium rhizome spot of ginger caused by Myrothecium verrucaria in Japan, the first record of the sugarcane froghoppers Mahanarva spectabilis and Mahanarva liturata infesting sugarcane plantations in Goianésia (Brazil) and the first report of Asteromella pruni-mahaleb on apricot.
