Project description
Phomopsis can and leaf spot disease of grapevines is an economically important disease in many vine growing areas of the world. Four different Phomopsis spp. have been associated with this disease. The aim of this project is to investigate the taxonomic significance of the different taxa found on grapevines in South Africa, as well as the endophytic growth and fungicide sensitivity of Phomopsis viticola isolates.
