Abstract: The European Food Safety Authority has established a horizon scanning exercise for plant pests by automated monitoring of open-source media. The news sources are screened using the publicly accessible MEDISYS (Medical Information System) platform of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. Here, we report the example of monitoring for Xylella fastidiosa, a highly polyphagous plant-pathogenic bacterium. Since its first occurrence in Europe, news sources have reported findings and latest developments. Media monitoring-related data can support surveillance or plant pests’ management programs by early warning and can help understand the impacts of plant pests and the societal response to new plant health threats.
