Potato Brown Rot

Bangladesh exported more than 100 tons of diseased potatoes to Russia

104 tons of ware potatoes that arrived in the seaport of Vladivostok from the People's Republic of Bangladesh in May appeared to be infected with a dangerous quarantine disease - Potato Brown Rot (Ralstonia solanacearum).

The import of unsafe agricultural products has been banned: Rosselkhoznadzor (Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance) in Primorsky Krai and Sakhalin Region prescribed to return the infected consignment of potatoes back to the country-exporter.

The serious bacterial disease of ware potato imported into Primorsky Krai has been detected for the fourth time. The first two cases were detected in April this year when 203 tons of infected potatoes arrived in Vladivostok from India. The third case was registered at the beginning of May: 57 tons of potatoes arrived from Korea were infected with Brown Rot.
