Cylindrocarpon root rot

cylindrocarpon root rot (GB)
Term for a root rot (also Cylindrocarpon cancer), which is caused by the fungus of the same name. It can lead to withering and even to the complete death of vines. The disease manifests itself through growth disorders such as branches dying from the top, chlorotic leaves, black-brown discolouration of the trunk, grafting sites and roots, as well as bark cracks and resin leakage on the trunk. Cancer-like clinical pictures result from attempts to overcome them. The occurrence is promoted by excessive soil wetness. See also under Vine enemies,
