Eradication as a control measure for X-disease in California cherry orchards

Acta Horticulturae ( 472): 715-721

Eradication as a control measure for X-disease in California cherry orchards

A study was carried out in 3 commercial cherry orchards to determine the pattern of spread of the X-disease phytoplasma. The position of diseased plants was mapped and leafhopper activity was monitored (with yellow sticky traps) over several cropping seasons. Leafhoppers were monitored by analysing extracts of vector species using dot-blot nucleic acid hybridization assays with a 32P-labelled DNA probe specific for the X-disease phytoplasma.
