Half of world's olive oil threatened by deadly bacteria

Spanish officials have confirmed the arrival of Xylella fastidiosa, a pathogen deadly to olive trees, on the country's mainland. About half the world's olive oil comes from Spain's estimated 340 million olive trees, and experts fear the bacteria could devastate the harvest. Up to a million olive trees in Italy were killed by the infection last year, leading Italian officials to chainsaw trees to the ground in an effort to stop the sickness.
