Argentina alerts to grapevine moth presence

Argentine authorities have alerted the presence of European grapevine moths (Lobesia botrana) in the country. The plant and animal health service, the Senasa, has reported that two adult pests have been captured in traps in San Juan province. A quarantine area of 1 km radius has been set up, in which growers are subject to carrying out emergency controls. Meanwhile, contingency plans for further quarantines have been implemented following the capture of single examples of the moth in three counties in which monitoring is to be intensified, including the use of a greater number of traps for a period of 70 days. The pest has been monitored since 2010, and San Juan was declared free of the pest earlier this year.
