LOCALIZATION OF THE SHARKA VIRUS IN PEACH TREES IN REFERENCE TO SANITARY CHECKING

G. Morvan, C. Castelain
Some peach trees infected with sharka in south of France were repeatedly tested on GF 305 seedling with budsticks picked from different branches of the trees.

Especially 3 trees of cultivar 'Geronimo' were indexed 15 times during a period of 3 years. The results show an erratic distribution of the virus in the tested trees. The best indexing results were obtained in autumn with chips from the middle of growing branches.
