Abstract

Grapevine red blotch virus (grapevine red blotch virus).

Abstract

The economic cost of GRBV is estimated to range from US $2,213/ha to $68,548/ha, depending on the initial infection rate and quality penalties for sub-standard fruits (Ricketts et al., 2017). In addition, there has been an unprecedented rate of vineyard removals in areas where the virus is widespread due to a substantially-reduced productive lifespan of GRBV-infected vineyard parcels.
