“Bois noir” is a widespread phytoplasma disease in the vineyards of Turkey. The main syptoms are intensive reddening and inward curling in the dark colored varieties. “Bois noir” infected scions were grafted on pathogen-free grapevine varieties as rootstocks in order to investigate the response of the varieties commonly grown in Turkey to this phytoplasma. Grafting have been made in spring and the symptoms were observed in September 2012. Detection of the phytoplasma was achived by PCR and nested PCR analysis with universal and group specific primers. No symptom development was detected in the varieties Kalecik Karasý, Bogazkere and Bornova Misketi that are all local varieties and were all negative in the PCR and nested-PCR tests.



“Bois noir”, phytoplasma, Kalecik Karasý, Bogazkere, Bornova Misketi.
