In Vitro Evaluation of Korean Wild Grapes for Disease Resistance
Su Jin Kim, Seo Jun Park, Young Sik Park, Sung Min Jung

We tested disease resistance in the following Korean wild grapes as anthracnose, brown leaf spot, gray mold, and ripe rot. Wild grapes (Vitis flexuosa, V. amurensis, V. coignetiae) showed a lower infection rate than conventional cultivars (‘Campbell Early’ and ‘Kyoho’) in the leaf disease tests (anthracnose, brown leaf spot). In the gray mold test, wild grapes showed lower infection rate than conventional cultivars, but in the ripe rot test, V.coignetiae showed a high infection rate. Our results showed that the wild Korean grapes are more resistant to general disease in Korea, which is useful for finding a parent for disease resistance breeding.
