Survey for grapevine yellows phytoplasmas in diverse European countries and Israel.

Abstract

Phytoplasmas of a large number of GY (flavescence dorée)-affected grapes from several European countries and Israel were characterized using PCR-RFLP of a 16S rDNA region. Only phytoplasmas in the EY group and the stolbur group were found. The latter was the most widely spread.
