General Comments

Phytoplasma detected in the UK for the first time in 2014, on hazel. Outbreak is expected to be self limiting in the absence of a vector and any evidence of spread, but monitoring should continue, including by stakeholders. Statutory action would be taken against findings in commercially traded plants.
