SCHEDULE 11SPECIAL MEASURES FOR THE CONTROL OF POTATO WART DISEASE(COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 69/464/EEC)(OJ No. L323, 24.12.69, p.1)

1.  When an occurrence of Synchytrium endobioticum(Schilb.) Perc., the pathogenic agent of Potato Wart Disease, is recorded, the appropriate Plant Protection service shall demarcate the contaminated plot and a safety zone large enough to ensure the protection of the surrounding areas. A plot shall be regarded as being contaminated when symptoms of Potato Wart Disease have been found on at least one plant from the plot.

2.  Subject to item 7 of this Schedule, the appropriate Plant Protection Service shall ensure that potato tubers and haulms which came from the contaminated plots be treated in such a way that the plant pest is destroyed. If it is not possible to determine the place from which the contaminated tubers and haulms came then the whole of the batch containing the affected tubers and haulms shall be appropriately treated.

3.  Subject to item 7 of this Schedule, once a contaminated plot has been demarcated:

(a)no potatoes shall be grown thereon;

(b)no plants or planting material intending for transplanting shall be grown thereon, stored in the ground or otherwise.

4.  Subject to item 7 of this Schedule, potatoes may be grown in the safety zone only if they are of a variety which is resistant to the races of Synchytrium endobioticum found on the contaminated plot. A potato variety shall be considered resistant to a particular race of Synchytrium endobioticum when it reacts to contamination by the pathogenic agent of that race in such a way that there is no danger of secondary infection.

5.  The measures taken to control Potato Wart Disease or to prevent it from spreading shall be revoked only if Synchytrium endobioticum is no longer found to be present.

6.  Subject to item 7 of this Schedule, no person shall hold cultures of Synchytrium endobioticum.

7.  An inspector may authorise exemptions from the measures referred to in items 2, 3, 4 and 6 of this Schedule for scientific purposes, tests and selection work provided that such exemptions do not prejudice the control of Potato Wart Disease and create no risk of the spread of this disease.

8.  Additional or stricter measures as may be deemed necessary for the control of Potato Wart Disease or to prevent its spread may be taken, or required by notice to be taken, in accordance with Article 22 or 23.

Article 18(2)

SCHEDULE 12SPECIAL MEASURES FOR THE CONTROL OF POTATO CYST NEMATODE(COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 69/465/EEC)(OJ No. L323, 24.12.69, p.3)

1.  If as a result of an official test Potato Cyst Nematode is recorded the land containing the plant pest shall be appropriately demarcated.

2.  Subject to item 5 of this Schedule, once contaminated land has been demarcated:

(a)no potatoes shall be grown thereon;

(b)no plants or planting material intended for transplanting shall be grown thereon, stored in the ground or otherwise.

3.  Subject to item 5 of this Schedule, seed potatoes which are contaminated or suspected of being contaminated may not be distributed as seed potatoes except where they have been treated in such a way that, to the satisfaction of an inspector, they are no longer contaminated.

4.  The measures taken to control Potato Cyst Eelworm or to prevent it from spreading shall be revoked only if the pest is no longer found to be present.

5.  Provided that there is no risk of the spread of Potato Cyst Nematode, an inspector may authorise:

(a)exemptions from the measures referred to in items 2 and 3 to this Schedule for scientific purposes, tests or selection work;

(b)the growing on contaminated land of potatoes other than seed potatoes which are resistant to pathotypes of Potato Cyst Nematode found on the contaminated land;

(c)the growing on contaminated land of potatoes other than seed potatoes, provided that such potatoes are to be harvested before the cysts of Potato Cyst Nematode mature;

(d)the growing on contaminated land of potatoes other than seed potatoes, where the ground has been decontaminated by appropriate means.

6.  A potato variety shall be regarded as being resistant to a particular pathotype of Potato Cyst Nematode if, when that variety is grown, a natural and annual decrease in the population of that pathotye is found to occur.

7.  Additional or stricter measures as may be deemed necessary for the control of Potato Cyst Nematode or to prevent its spread may be taken, or required by notice to be taken, in accordance with Article 22 or 23.

Article 18(2)

SCHEDULE 13SPECIAL MEASURES FOR THE CONTROL OF POTATO RING ROT(COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 80/665/EEC) (OJ No. L180, 14.7.80, p.30)

1.  Any person suspecting the occurrence, or actual presence, of Potato Ring Rot in growing potatoes or harvested, stored or marketed tubers shall immediately notify the appropriate Plant Protection Service, which shall determine whether any further investigation is necessary.

2.  Official testing pursuant to item 1 of this Schedule shall be carried out in accordance with appropriate methods to determine the actual presence of the Potato Ring Rot bacterium. A growing area, store or consignment shall be considered to be contaminated with the Potato Ring Rot bacterium if it is discovered in a single plant or tuber of potato. The official testing shall, in addition, be carried out either:

  • on potato stocks which are clonally related to the stock involved in the contaminated unit and which may be infected because of their clonal relationship or

  • on potato stock that may have become contaminated through contact with the contaminated stock or other objects which may also have been contaminated.

3.  Where the occurrence of Potato Ring Rot is suspected or confirmed the appropriate Plant Protection Service shall take, or require to be taken, the necessary measures in accordance with Article 22 or 23 to prevent the spread, or potential spread of the disease.

4.  Seed potatoes shall not be certified under Council Directive 66/403/EEC(12) on the marketing of seed potatoes unless they derive in direct line from material certified free of Potato Ring Rot. Such certification shall be based on tests carried out either:

  • on plants of the initial clonal selection, at least where the contamination affects seed potato production in the country of origin, or

  • on representative samples of the basic seed potatoes or earlier propagations.

5.  Contaminated potatoes shall not be re-planted and grown on any land and they shall be treated in such a way so as to prevent the spread of the disease. Potatoes grown on a holding where any field, store or consignment is contaminated shall not be used as seed potatoes. No potatoes shall be grown in contaminated land during the two growing seasons following the recorded contamination or as long as volunteer potatoes are present therein.

6.  In addition, where a field, store or consignment on a holding is contaminated the following shall be banned in the growing period following the appearance of Potato Ring Rot:

  • the planting of potatoes for the growing of seed potatoes, and

  • the planting of potatoes other than officially certified seed potatoes.

7.  Any buildings, containers, packaging materials, vehicles, handling, grading or packing machinery and any other objects that may have come into contact with contaminated potatoes during the previous six months shall, under the supervision of an inspector, be destroyed or cleansed and disinfected, as appropriate, before coming into contact with other potatoes.

8.  Following the contamination of potatoes, a zone covering an area within which the spread of Potato Ring Rot is possible shall be demarcated for a period of at least 3 years. In this demarcated zone the appropriate Plant Protection Service shall ensure supervision of the holding or holdings growing, storing or handling potatoes, and will take, or require by notice to be taken, all necessary measures as deemed necessary in accordance with Article 22 or 23 to prevent the spread of Potato Ring Rot.

9.  No one shall, in the demarcated zone:

  • cut seed potatoes,

  • use pricker-type planting machines,

  • transport potato plants or tubers, unless such plants or tubers are free from Potato Ring Rot.

10.  Subject to item 11 of this Schedule, no person shall keep cultures of (Clavibacter michiganensis) (Smith) Davis et al ssp.sepedonicus(Spieckermann et Kotthoff) Davis et al.

11.  The appropriate Minister may authorise exemptions from any of the measures referred to in this Schedule for experimental or scientific purposes, and work in varietal selection, provided that such exemptions do not prejudice the control of Potato Ring Rot.

12.  Additional or stricter measures as may be deemed necessary for the control of Potato Ring Rot or to prevent its spread may be taken, or required by notice to be taken, in accordance with Article 22 or 23.
