Virus free Fruit Nurseries (VirFree)

Start date: Jan 1, 2017, End date: Dec 31, 2020,

Fruit trees and grapevine are propagated vegetatively and are often grafted. As a result they suffer from a high number of pathogens such as viruses and viroids, a number of which are causing severe yield losses and reduce the productive life of the affected plants. As these pathogens cannot be controlled by the application of chemicals, the most efficient way to combat them is the production and ...
