PLUM POX VIRUS IMPACT IN ROMANIAN PLUM PRODUCTION
Plum pox virus infection is a major limitation to stone fruit production and fruit quality causing serious economic losses worldwide. Researches regarding the behaviour of the plum genotypes in natural field conditions, the phonotypical expression of the Plum pox virus attack on leaves and fruits and his impact on the plum production were carried out at University of Craiova - Fruit Growing Research & Extension Vâlcea during 1996 and 2009. Regarding the Plum pox virus incidence were evaluated 44% from the total number of Prunus domestica genotypes.
