Update to Defra pest risk assessment for Xylella fastidiosa published

In September 2017 Defra produced a new appendix to the 2014 UK Pest risk assessment (PRA). The update was produced to determine whether developments in the knowledge of this pest since the production of the original PRA has substantially altered the risk ratings given and their level of confidence. It provides a detailed evaluation of the evidence that the different X. fastidiosa subspecies and strains pose a risk to plant health in temperate climates such as those in the UK.
