Description

Groundnut germplasm exchange has played a significant role in crop improvement programmes by providing wide genetic diversity world over. However, there is an inherent risk of introduction of new exotic pathogens or new/more virulent races of a pathogen into new areas. The basic principle of plant quarantine is to regulate the movement of seed material to mitigate the associated pest risk. Salvaging, a process of disinfecting infected seed, is an important quarantine strategy to prevent the introduction of new pathogens or virulent races into new areas.
