Stem pitting

English name (also Rupestris stem pitting) for the vine wood disease wood-runt; see under Rugose Wood-Complex.

English name (short RW) for a group of vine wood diseases that are presumably caused by viruses. These include corky bark disease, stem grooving and stem pitting. The causes have not yet been fully clarified; presumably, they are virus groups such as Grapevine clostrovirus A and B and various leaf roll virus complexes. All these diseases lead at least to a reduction in yield and a significantly reduced life span of the vines. The transmission or spread of the diseases occurs (at least in Europe) mostly during grafting through infected rootstocks (rootstocks) or scions (tops). Only in Mexico and the southern USA is there evidence of scale insect transmission (Corky bark). The symptoms of the different diseases are very similar, because wood and bark are affected by the infection

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
