The Research Station for Fruit Growing Constanta (RSFG Constanta) is the holder of the mother plantations of superior biological categories of almond species. To align with the new legal requirements that came into effect in 2016, almond cultivars have been introduced into the assessment process for obtaining candidate pre-basic mother plants. The assessment evaluated authenticity in terms of distinction, uniformity, stability, and phytoviral infection. The phytoviral status was assessed visually by the biological test method and serologically using the DAS-ELISA test method. The pathogen identification procedure for apricot was followed: ACLSV, ApMV, PPV, PDV, PNRSV, and ACLR. The results revealed the presence of PPV and ApMV viruses in some almond plants of the LSQUOMirelaRSQUO cultivar. Healthy plants have been propagated.
