The effects of benzothiadiazole (BTH) and L-2-oxothiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid (OTC) on the growth and viral content of micropropagated, Plum pox virus (PPV)-infected peach [(Prunus persica (L.) Batsch] 'GF305' plantlets were analyzed. Low BTH and OTC concentrations resulted in a significant increase in the growth of GF305 peach and plum plants, with greater effects in PPV-infected than in healthy GF305 peach plantlets. Neither BTH nor OTC reduced the virus content. In fact, the highest growth… CONTINUE READING
