Fruit trees and grapevine are propagated vegetatively and are often grafted

As a result they suffer from a high number of pathogens such as viruses and viroids, with some of them causing severe yield losses and reducing the productive life of the affected plants

These pathogens cannot be controlled by the application of chemicals therefore the most efficient way to combat them is the production and commercialization of high quality pathogen-tested propagative material
