What is plant health diagnostic?

Healthy plants are essential for a dependable supply of seeds, plant growing material, and consequently for the sustainability of the food chain for humans and animals. Close surveillance of plant pests and diseased plants is therefore of most importance for the public well-being and the economy. Several players are involved in plant health and its protection. Plant health diagnostics consists in the detection, identification and characterization of plant pests (viruses, phytoplasma, bacteria, fungi, viroids and nematodes) and represents an essential step in the control of infectious diseases of cultivated plant varieties.
