Spain issues nematode control plan

Spain has approved a potato nematode control plan. The government’s council of Ministers agreed a decree this month to avoid the spread of potato cyst nematodes ( Globodera pallida). The new regulation seeks to guarantee the absence of the nematodes in potato and other vegetable fields. The measures include sampling and testing procedures for private and official monitoring. All in the potato production chain must inform their regional authorities of all suspected or confirmed presence of the pest. The Ministry of Agriculture and the Environment is to fund up to half of the costs of implementing the plan.
