Research Project: Identification and Durability of Novel Sources of Resistance to Pierce’s Disease in Table and Raisin Grape

Location: Crop Diseases, Pests and Genetics Research

Project Number: 2034-21220-007-11-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 15, 2018
End Date: Jun 30, 2019

Evaluate table grape cultivars, breeding lines, and related species for response to Xylella fastidiosa infection.

1) Screening Vitis germplasm, table, and raisin grape cultivars for susceptibility to two strains of Xylella fastidiosa. 2) Evaluating resistant material for resistance durability to a panel of Xylella fastidiosa isolates representing the diversity in the San Joaquin Valley, California. 3) Disseminating research results to growers and industry through written and oral communication.
