ASSESSMENT OF PHYLLOXERA LEAF GALLING INCIDENCE ON EUROPEAN GRAPEVINES IN BADACSONY HUNGARY
In 1997, in one-year old plantations at the FVM Research Institute for Viticulture and Enology, Badacsony, a serious increase in phylloxera leaf-galling was observed. In 2001, leaf-galling was estimated in one- and two-year old plantations of Vitis vinifera L. Kéknyelű, Budai and Badacsony 36 and Rózsakő. In the fall of 2006 leaf-galling was examined on V. vinifera Sauvignon Blanc. From the European varieties, the leaf galls were more frequently observed on the Muscat-like varieties, the most sensitive being Cserszegi Fűszeres. On V. vinifera Sauvignon Blanc leaf galling was observed on 96% of the foliage. On the upper leaves of randomly selected shoots 73% were infected. Our observations, results and experiences confirm the necessity for an in-depth investigation of leaf galling phylloxera, in preparedness for new infestations on European varieties.
