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 record of Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola causing bacterial leaf streak of rice in Uganda, the first record of Chickpea chlorotic dwarf virus infecting hot pepper in India and a study on the impact of global warming on insects.
