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 report on the vine mealybug Planococcus ficus damaging vineyards in Brazil, the first report of Psallops niedzwiedzkii, a new species from Ghana, and the first report of Soybean chlorotic blotch virus and West African Asystasia virus 1 infecting cassava and a wild cassava relative in Cameroon and Togo.

    Oh my god! That’s something very dangerous for the plants and other vegetations. Government must look into this matter and do the needful asap to protect the nature.
