The XF-Actors Web addresses Xylella fastidiosa from a scientific perspective and with a multidisciplinary approach

2018/24/01 - The analysis of the different cases of those countries affected by the Xylella fastidiosa, the strategies to fight it and the latest regulations on the bacteria are some of the subjects studied at the XF-Actors website, an initiative that is part of an EU project to improve prevention, early detection and control of this aggressive bacteria.

According to industry experts, this website deals with the threat of Xylella fastidiosa in the most rigorous and scientific way possible, as it is done by European research groups that day after day battle with this bacterium, knowing it in depth.

XF-Actors aims to establish a multidisciplinary research program to respond to the urgent need to advance knowledge about Xylella fastidiosa. To do this, it incorporates a complete file of the current legislation in the states where the presence of this bacterium is perceived as a threat to their crops and plants.

The detailed analysis of the cases in the different countries and regions affected also occupies an important place on this website, which delves into its causes and consequences to identify and evaluate the variable parameters and the factors that can be used to analyze risks.

Prevention Strategies

On November 14, 2016 started in Bari (Italy) the implementation of the European project XF-Actors funded by the Horizon 2020 program of the European Union (EU) for the prevention, early detection and control of Xylella fastidiosa.

The European project "Xylella fastidiosa Active Containment Through a multidisciplinary-Oriented Research Strategy (XF-Actors)" will last four years and responds to the urgent need to improve the prevention, early detection and control of this bacteria. One of its objectives is to evaluate the potential for the spread of the bacteria across the EU territory and establish prevention strategies in areas free of the pathogen.

Specifically, it will establish an integrated global management strategy for diseases associated with the Xylella fastidiosa that can be applied both to organic agriculture and integrated management, to prevent the spread of the bacteria and control its economic, environmental and social impacts.

At XF-Actors, 29 entities from 14 countries, including Spain, participate (10 from the EU as well as the United States, Brazil, Taiwan and Costa Rica). Institutions of supranational scope are also present, such as the Joint Research Center of the European Commission or the EPPO (European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization).

It should be noted that the total budget of the project is 6.9 million euros, financed 100% by the EU.
