Plum pox virus: detection and management

Code: 9781838799038
Manuel Rubio, Federico Dicenta and Pedro Martínez-Gómez, CEBAS-CSIC, Spain

Chapter synopsis: Sharka disease, caused by Plum pox virus (PPV), is the most important virus inducing extended yield losses in plums, on account of reduced fruit quality, premature fruit drop and rapid natural virus spread by aphid vectors. This chapter provides general information on the status of this disease around the world, with emphasis on strains, detection methods, orchard management and breeding for resistance. The chapter examines the challenge of PPV control for sustainable cultivation of plums and looks at the genetic and molecular basis of PPV resistance in Prunus. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area.
