Abstract


The vector efficiency of three populations of Xiphinema index in the transmission of an Italian isolate of grapevine fanleaf virus (GFV) was tested using «Mission» grape seedlings as bait plants. The population from Italy transmitted the GFV isolate more efficiently than a USA (California) or an Israel population.
