Cryphonectria parasitica is a devastating plant pathogen infecting chestnuts (Castanea spp.). The long-distance spread of C. parasitica is thought to occur through the movement of infected plants for planting, bark or wood material. There is evidence of a long latent period on infected plants. Long latent periods are problematic as affected trees do not show symptoms for some time and are being shipped to previously non-affected areas. Plants for planting were emphasized as the highest risk pathway for entry of the pathogen into protected zones, therefore a robust, sensitive detection method to screen for latent infections of planting material is required to sup...
