Brazil eradicates codling moths

Brazil has become free of the agricultural pest, codling moths (Cydia pomonella). The insect has been excluded from the list of quarantined pests, and been added to the list of those absent. The news has been issued on the official gazette. The authorities had maintained an eradication programme for several years (Agrow passim). That included the capture of over 20,000 moths following the laying of over 10,000 traps. Minister of Agriculture Neri Geller welcomes the development. “A severe agricultural pest that has reached countries such as Argentina, the US and Uruguay, this Brazilian victory has been vital.”
