Argentine citrus greening measures come off

Argentine authorities have declared early successes in attempts to control the spread of the major citrus fruit disease, citrus greening ( Candidatus liberibacter). The national animal and plant health inspection service, the Senasa, declared a nationwide “phytosanitary emergency” in December, after one of its research stations detected the disease in insect vectors in the Tucuman, Salta and Jujuy regions. It banned the movement of propagation materials, plants and parts except the fruit itself, across the country, without authorisation of Senasa. Strict measures included the destruction of produce found not to have had all controls imposed. Early sampling has not found further detections in other regions, the Senasa says.
