FURTHER EVIDENCE ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SODIUM CONTENT IN THE SOIL AND INCIDENCE OF WOOD DECAY IN KIWIFRUIT

F. Osti, S. Di Marco
Wood decay is a recent chronic wood disease caused by different fungi with a complex aetiology not clear. This harmful and spread disease is characterized by a correlation between yield losses and oliar symptoms, which in turn have an erratic nature as esca of grapevine. A survey is being carried out on 10-year-old, in which wood decay appeared for the first time in 2003. Each year and in each, the incidence of the disease was assessed by recording the percentage of vines with foliar symptoms. Moreover, in each vineyard the content of exchangeable sodium in the soil was evaluated.
