What is this seminar about?
Invasive Phytophthora pathogens are causing significant economic damage to agricultural, horticultural and forestry crops worldwide, as well as ecological damage to native plant species in wider environments. These pathogens are well adapted to thriving in plant nurseries and traded plants are a well-documented pathway facilitating their spread both nationally and internationally.
The ‘EUPHRESCO ID-PHYT’ project (June 2020-March 2023) involved a collaboration of science teams in six partner countries who used a standardised set of protocols to detect and analyse Phytophthora pathogens in their plant nurseries. Industry stakeholders in a broader ranges of countries were also surveyed for their perceptions on biosecurity in the trade.
One outcome of the project is a shared best practice guidance document for reducing Phytophthora risk in trade which will be translated into five different languages.
This webinar will present an overview of project findings across the partner countries, emphasising the benefits of science-stakeholder collaboration and engagement on plant health at an international level.
