Polyphagous nematode pest already present in UK; particularly damaging to Azaleas at present; but could move into crops such as maize and forestry crops (Pinus) in the longer term. Need to raise awareness amongst relevant sectors.

About this section

Our plants are under greater threat than ever before. There is increasing movement of plants and other material traded from an increasing variety of sources. This increases the chances of exotic pests arriving with imported goods and travellers, as well as by natural means. Shoot is working with Defra to help members to do their part in preventing the introduction and spread of invasive risks.
