ABSTRACT

South American leaf blight (SALB) is a fungal disease of rubber trees and poses a major threat to the region. Prevention of the introduction of SALB is of major concern to member countries of the Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission (APPPC) and is one of the priority areas in the work plan of the APPPC. In November 2011, the APPPC organized a regional workshop for development of a training programme and production of reference materials for protection against SALB. The reference materials include promotional materials to raise awareness of the dangers posed by the introduction of SALB in the region. They include a pamphlet, a booklet, posters, banners and PowerPoint presentations for training sessions for various audiences including the general public, extension and quarantine officers, pathologists and technical officers. The workshop also prepared operational guidelines to safeguard against the incursion of SALB in the region. This publication is a compilation of the above materials and is expected to enhance the capacity and capability of each countrys readiness to detect, prevent and manage the introduction of SALB. Translation of this publication, or selected parts, is encouraged to maximize the potential benefits for countries in the region.
