|Features & Benefits
|The Plum pox virus (PPV) ImmunoStrip® is used to detect the presence of PPV in stone fruit crops. ImmunoStrips® are the perfect screening tool for use in the field, greenhouse, and the lab.
Plum pox virus (Sharka disease) is an aphid transmitted potyvirus that can cause significant loss of yield and marketability of stone fruit (peaches, plum, cherry, etc). PPV is found around the world and is of particular importance in Europe and other Mediterranean regions. PPV detections have been confirmed in the U.S. and Canada in the late 1990's and early 2000's which instigated large scale testing and eradication programs due to the severity of the disease.
