Pest reports

The plant health services of the Bundesländer forward notifications on the detection of pests not yet present to the Julius Kühn Institute. The JKI passes the information to the other EU Member States, the EU Commission and the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO).

When the pest causes a risk not yet known, a pest risk analysis is carried out.

Mutual notification on notifiable pests guarantees an early warning of the competent plant protection organizations on potential risks and allows them to take appropriate monitoring and control measures.
