The HTA has launched an e-learning module on Xylella fastidiosa providing plantarea and garden retail staff with the latest information about this plant disease that presents a huge threat to the industry.
The module, which is available to all free of charge, is one of the actions to come from the emergency Xylella meeting held at the HTA offices at which garden retailers requested a resource which could be easily shared amongst staff in order to raise awareness about the plant disease.
The 8-minute-long module can be accessed here: www.hta.org.uk/xylella
Whilst aimed at plantarea and garden retail staff the information will also be relevant for plant buyers and business owners, as well as the wider industry. The elearning module includes information about:
- Host species
- Five-point plan
- Plant Passporting
