Abstract:
INTRODUCTION

Foundation Plant Materials Service (FPMS) is a self-supporting service department in the College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences at the University of California, Davis, which produces, tests, maintains, and distributes disease-tested propagating material for use by California nurseries (For additional information, see the FPMS website at http://fpms.ucdavis.edu). At this time, FPMS is responsible for grape (Vitis), strawberry (Fragaria), fruit tree, nut tree, rose (Rosa), and sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) clean-stock programs. Since its inception, scientists working with FPMS have pioneered techniques in grapevine virus disease detection and elimination (Nyland and Goheen,1969; Alley and Golino, 2000). These are the two cornerstones of the clean stock program: the ability to determine whether target virus(es) or other pathogens are present and the ability to eliminate virus from diseased stock.

Micro-shoot tip culture is the method of choice to eliminate virus
