Experimental research is laborious and takes time, but it is necessary. Congratulations to authors for pursuing a technically challenging project; a key a milestone in learning how to manage this olive disease in Italy. Isolation and pathogenicity of Xylella fastidiosa
The Xylella fastidiosa website will now feature Ask Sandy! Sandy Purcell has studied Xylella fastidiosa for over 40 years, and although he is now retired, he still keeps up with the news and conducts some research. He will try to answer your questions
We are scientists that have worked with the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa and the diseases it cause for several years, both in the USA and Brazil. Interest in the current olive disease epidemic in Italy associated with X. fastidiosa has recently led
