heads-up if you're shopping for geraniums.. if they made it from guatemala to michigan it's pretty certain they made it to other states.

I agree it's important for all gardeners and farmers to know about but where does it say that the bacteria is considered a USDA Bioterrorism select agent? Bioterrorism is a strong word.

Some info about the bacteria: https://extension.psu.edu/bacterial-...a-solanacearum

Bacterial Wilt - Ralstonia solanacearum

Bacteria called Ralstonia solanacearum attack almost 200 plant species in 33 different plant families. This constitutes one of the largest known host ranges for any plant pathogenic bacterium.....

it’s stated several times in the linked webinar.

https://plantpath.ifas.ufl.edu/rsol/...ms_Module.html
“In the United States, several introductions of R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 have occurred as a result of importation of infested geranium cuttings from off-shore production sites, but the pathogen was apparently eradicated. However, because of the risk of its possible re-introduction through importation of infected plant material, and its potential to affect potato production in cold-temperate areas in the northern United States, R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 is considered a serious threat to the United States potato industry. It is of quarantine importance and has been listed as a Select Agent plant pathogen under the Agricultural Bioterrorism Act of 2002.”
