PM 7/91 (2) Fusarium circinatum (formerly Gibberella circinata)
EPPO Bulletin 49 (2), 228-247
Abstract: This Standard describes a diagnostic protocol for Fusarium circinatum. It should be used in conjunction with PM 7/76 Use of EPPO diagnostic protocols.
When revising this protocol, the expert working group carefully considered the IPPC Standard (IPPC, 2017) adopted in 2017 on Fusarium circinatum ISPM 27 (Annex 22 to ISPM 27). However, this revision also took into account more recent information on the increased diversity and new Fusarium species reported in the literature (e.g. Mullett et al., 2017) and the performance characteristics of the various tests assessed during the Pinestrength COST Action project (FP1406; Ioos et al., 2019). This new information led to the recommendation that positive results (from isolation or real-time PCR) should be confirmed as indicated in the flow diagram. Additional information, such as sampling from seedlings (both symptomatic and asymptomatic) and vectors was also added.
