Smaranda Doina ROȘU-MAREȘ


Bacterial diseases induce various symptoms on all fruit tree species cultivated in Bistrita area, north Transylvania, Romania. The preliminary results showed a very high incidence of bacterial associated symptoms in this sour cherry plot, only 1.14% of the trees was without any symptoms, and suggest a rapid evolution of the attack on leafs and young branches. In the future we will continue this study with laboratory tests in an attempt to determine the etiological agent causing the bacterial diseases in this orchard.
