These guidelines are divided into 2 parts. The first makes general recommendations on how best to move grain and fodder legume germplasm and breeding material. The second part covers the important viral, bacterial and fungal diseases of quarantine concern. The information given on any particular pathogen concentrates on those aspects most relevant to quarantine. An appendix lists Latin and vernacular (English, French, Spanish, German and other) names of major legume species. (Abstract © CAB ABSTRACTS, CAB International)
