El Ministerio de Agricultura francés ha emitido un comunicado en el que informa de la detección de un cafeto portador de la bacteria Xylella fastidiosa en Rungis, cerca de París. La planta proviene de América Central y podría haberse introducido a través de Países Bajos, si bien la investigación sobre su origen está en curso en este momento.

Statement of EFSA: Xylella fastidiosa hosts, vectors, pathways and risk reduction

Statement of EFSA: Xylella fastidiosa hosts, vectors, pathways and risk reduction | Xylella fastidiosa | Scoop.it

Following a request from the European Commission, EFSA was asked to provide urgent scientific and technical assistance on the plant pathogenic bacterium Xylella fastidiosa.

X. fastidiosa was detected in olive trees in Lecce province in Apulia, Italy, in October 2013. This is the first outbreak of X. fastidiosa under field conditions in theEuropean Union. EFSA reviewed the host range and vectors, the pathways for entry and spread and the risk reduction options. Known hosts include many cultivated and spontaneous plants common in Europe, however a range of European wild plant species would meet this bacterium for the first time, increasing uncertainty on thehost range. All xylem-fluid feeding insects in Europe should be regarded as potential vectors of X. fastidiosa and identification of the vector in the Apulian outbreak is pending.

The main entry pathway for X. fastidiosa is the movement of plants for planting. Infective vectors of X. fastidiosa transported on plant consignments are also of concern.

There is no record of successful eradication of X. fastidiosa once established outdoors due to the broad host range of the pathogen and of its vectors. Strategies for prevention of introduction from areas where the pathogen is present and for containment of outbreak should focus on the two main pathways and be based on integrated system approach combining, when applicable, the most effective options.

Xylella fastidiosa was detected recently for the first time in Europe. It causes several diseases of economic importance: grapevine Pierce's disease; citrus variegated chlorosis; peach phony disease; plum leaf scald; as well as leaf scorch diseases on oleander, almond, coffee, pecan, and amenity tree species.

El mercado en origen del aceite de oliva se calienta (se pagan casi 6 euros por kilo en Italia y más de 3 en España, Túnez y Grecia), una alegría para los productores, que se enfrentan a problemas inesperados, como la posible irrupción de la bacteria Xylella fastidiosa, enemigo público número 1 del olivar.
