root rot

root rot (GB)

This threatening vine disease (also called ailing disease) is caused by various either individually or in combination mushrooms caused. The most common are Armillaria mellea (Hallymasch or hedge sponge), Roesleria hypogaea and Rosellinia necatrix. The vines show under the bark at the lower parts and the root of a whitish cover (mycelial plaques = area of ​​fungal threads). Especially in vineyards with former trees, these occur. The vines gradually die or die off quite suddenly (see also below) apoplexy ). A rotting of the roots can also be caused by overly moist soil (wetness stress) and animal pests such as the phylloxera and larvae of the root flies are caused or favors, since at the feeding sites, the fungi and other harmful substances such bacteria can penetrate easily. The mushrooms are fought by smoking. In case of waterlogging additionally the root mold (Dematophora necatrix) occur. A specific form is the Cylindrocarpon root rot (Cylindrocarpon cancer).
