Department of Agriculture notice regarding Tuta absoluta pest

The Department of Agriculture said that farmers who are presently growing tomatoes intended for processing and are encountering damage caused by the tomato pest Tuta absoluta are to contact their producer organisation and inform them about the case.

The producer organisation is to communicate to the Plant Health Department (PHD) and the Department of Agriculture, the name of the expert who will be investigating the claims made by the farmers. When the expert recommends complete eradication of the product, the PO is to inform the PHD by reporting the necessary information.

The information is to be sent to David Mallia, scientific officer at the Diagnosis and Control Unit within PHD, on: david.b.mallia@gov.mt and Pierre Rapinett on: pierre.rapinett@gov.mt.

The eradication of the crop shall only be executed on the PHD's approval, the department said. Farmers will still be receiving the entitlement payment as usual.
