Virus diseases of grapevine and fruit trees in Hungary

In Hungary, investigations on virus diseases of woody plants started fully in the 1960s and the authors of this paper give the results of these studies. On grapevine, eight nepoviruses, four air-borne viruses and three not fully identified viruses have been found. On fruit trees, 19 viruses and 3 phytoplasmas have been observed (of which 7 viruses are properly characterized). A list of viruses of forest tree species and shrubs is also given. The EPPO Secretariat has extracted the following new data from these lists:

  • Blueberry leaf mottle nepovirus (grapevine Bulgarian latent nepovirus) is reported on grapevine (EPPO A2 quarantine pest).

  • Strawberry latent ringspot nepovirus (EU Annex II/A2) is reported on peach (Prunus persica).
