Phytophthora fragariae was first detected in the Republic of Serbia in 2002, and it has been included in A2 quarantine list of damaging organisms since 2003. The project titled ‘Monitoring of soft fruit mother plantings aimed at the control of Phytophthora fragariae, causal agent of root rot’ was realized over 2004 – 2005 aiming at determination of population rate of the pathogen and the control of raspberry planting material. Over that period, the total 388 samples were tested. Collected samples were analyzed by PCR. The presence of Phytophthora fragariae was detected in 156 samples.
