Apple Proliferation Phytoplasma

  title={Apple Proliferation Phytoplasma},
  author={Erich Seem{\"u}ller and Luigi Carraro and Wolfgang Jarausch and Bernd Schneider},
Introduetion Apple proliferation (AP) is one of the most economically important phytoplasmal diseases in Europe. It seriously impairs fruit size, yield, and vigor of the trees. AP was first reported in northern Italy (Rui et al., 1950). In the following decades, the occurrence of AP was reported from most European countries. Due to its transmissibility by grafting, the disease was initially thought to be caused by a virus. Later, wall-less bacteria, then named mycop1asma-1ike organisms, were… CONTINUE READING
