Guidance for stakeholders

BRIGIT will create models to predict how to effectively implement surveillance and control strategies.

BRIGIT will build on, for the first time, details knowledge of human behavious and plant trade in the UK, thus identifying the paths by which Xylella fastidiosa infected plants may spread throughout the UK. These parameters will be integrated into a multisale spatially explicit modelling approach of Xylella dispersal that will also include knowledge generated on insect dispersal behaviour and pathogen-interactions with plant hosts.

Current updates related to Xylella can be found on the Defra Plant Health Information Portal .
