This vine disease is caused by the fungus Verticillium dahliae (hence also called Verticillium wilt). Of the mushroom is one of the most important wilt pathogens in plants and occurs in more than 300 plants, for example in cotton, hops, clover, oilseed rape, stone fruit, tomatoes and also in the Rebstock, The soil-borne fungus, after colony formation at the root surface, penetrates directly through the root bark or through wounds into the plants. As a result, the entire nutrient and water transport to the upper parts of the plant is interrupted (also by defense reactions of the plant). It comes to the wilt of individual shoots to the death of the entire plant. The fungus can not be fought directly. See also below Vine enemies,
