General Comments

Bacterium mainly affecting olive trees where it causes galls of branches and occasionally other parts of the tree. Present in many regions of the world, including parts of Europe, but considered to be absent from the UK. Following assessment this pest does not meet the criteria for an RNQP in GB, so is recommended for deregulation.
