“In the This resistance trait mapped at CSIRO provides complete The rootstocks of some American vines are resistant to phylloxera because they have adapted over millions of years. Kent Town DC Theoretical and Applied Genetics 132: 1847-1860. The only European grapes that are natively resistant to phylloxera are the Assyrtiko grape which grows on the volcanic island of Santorini, Greece, although it is not clear whether the resistance is due to the rootstock itself or the volcanic ash on which it grows; and the Juan Garcia grape variety, autochthonous to the medieval village of Fermoselle in Spain. “Studies have shown that in Europe and The current rootstocks are not, or only partially, resistant to new phylloxera populations. The hard to detect microscopic louse marches through vineyards with a scorched earth policy, destroying every vine in its path. nationally. Nodosities on resistant rootstocks have also been frequently observed. grape cultivars8,” Harley said. questioned4, given a breakdown in this resistance would severely that phylloxera is the major endemic biosecurity threat to the Australian wine 733: 183-195. Walker says that the sandy bank is phylloxera-free, but an infestation marred the other side. Phylloxera can feed on both the roots and leaves of Vitis species depending on the genotype of the host and insect2. The concept of vine rootstocks came to the fore during the phylloxera crisis, when Europe’s defenceless grapevines were saved by grafting them onto phylloxera-resistant North American roots. Vitis Vinifera Riesling has no resistance whatsoever and is very sensitive to all phylloxera biotypes. with Agriculture Victoria’s phylloxera research program to ensure that the rootstocks we are developing will provide effective resistance to a wide range resistance in grapevine (Vitis cinerea) This technique uses markers to determine Kocsis L., Granett J., Walker M. A., Lin, H. and Omer, A. D. In these cases, a high level of feeding on young roots produces numerous nodosities rather than tuberosities, which appears to reduce root function and vine performance under abiotic stresses.”. The G4, G7, G19, G20 and G30. Annals of Applied Biology, 161(2), to phylloxera and root knot nematode for Australian conditions. In It is present in many vineyards, likely the majority globally. The vineyards were eventually saved by using phylloxera-resistant native American vines, not as direct fruit producers (the taste of wine from American grape species was unacceptable), but as rootstocks. A Scientific Basis The DNA of a new rootstock can immediately be checked to see if the rootstock contains resistance to phylloxera. Rapid expansion meant that it was estimated at that time that only 55 percent of vines were on resistant rootstock. To date, this is used in almost all vineyards in the world to prevent root damage caused by phylloxera. Phylloxera-Resistant Rootstock Trials in the Coastal Valleys of California. To investigate which part of the grapevine DNA may provide resistance to phylloxera biotype A, an Australian research group crossed Vitis cinerea C2-50 with Vitis vinifera Riesling and infected the resulting plants with phylloxera biotype A. Phylloxera’s arrival in Europe,
i in the 1850s wiped out millions of hectares of vineyards within years. Due to phylloxera’s effect on vine vigor, the vast majority of the world’s wine grapes are now grown on phylloxera-resistant rootstock. (2018). This means that adapted phylloxera biotypes can still live on the roots and leaves of the plant. National Wine Centre Genetic studies seem to offer a solution in the development and realization of rootstocks with a higher resistance to phylloxera. However, the use of these rootstocks resulted in the emergence of biotype B (in California) and biotype C (in Europe) that are able to feed and reproduce on these rootstocks. Cane hardiness is very good on this rootstock (Howell, 1987). rootstocks can be grown that are resistant to multiple phylloxera biotypes. CBG Photography Group, Center for Biodiversity via CC0 (A) and Joachim Schmid (1) (2) via CC BY 3.0 DE (B and C). the SO4, 125 AA, 5BB Kober and 420A rootstocks. However, the adaptation of new resistant phylloxeran biotypes poses a risk and should be monitored. This was well below the figure for other regions in the country. On Vitis vinifera, these phylloxera strains feed on mature roots, resulting in swellings called tuberosities, which ultimately lead to vine death. whether these genes also regulate resistance to the other phylloxera biotypes, The piece of DNA that causes the resistance is named (very originally) RESISTANCE DAKTULOSPHAIRA VITIFOLIAE 2 (RDV2). P.R. The use of resistant rootstocks from Vitis species other than V. vinifera is advocated as the main method of radicicole phylloxera management and may be considered as the most sustainable example of bio-logical control for a pest ever used [6]. and whether there are more genes present in the grapevine genome that can provide That’s why the work of the CSIRO Rootstock Breeding program, led by Harley Smith, has caught the attention of the biosecurity world. Botanic Road This led to replanting most of the vineyards in the 1980s in California due to the failure of the AxR1 rootstock. (2007). Nobody wants to number of Vitis riparia, Vitis rupestris and Vitis berlandieri selections6. Once infested, the only solution is to replant resistant rootstock, whihc is selected based on site conditions and phylloxera strain. Yet even grafting is not always effective. Lloyd A. Lider. We’re not only using this strategy for phylloxera but also for root knot nematode resistance,” Harley said. The current rootstocks are not, or only partially, resistant to new phylloxera populations. By selecting new vines for the Evaluating rootstocks for phylloxera resistance is a major hindrance to a breeding program (Walker, 1992). (2018a). insect pest1. industry, the use of resistant and/or tolerant rootstocks is an essential species including Vitis cinerea8,9 to further increase the As expected, the resistance to phylloxera comes entirely from the DNA of the Vitis cinerea C2-50 and not from the Riesling grape. Most rootstocks showed a site specific reaction, showing good performance only on one, not on all sites. Because Phylloxera Populations on Resistant Rootstocks When phylloxera feed on young root tips, swellings or galls (nodosities) form, giving rootlets a characteristic clubbed appearance (Fig 1). Progeny derived from these crosses containing two resistance traits for phylloxera will be selected using DNA markers. The control of phylloxera by grafting on resistant rootstock is now well understood and accepted throughout the world. Given Postal address: marker-assisted selection. Regardless, Riley had discovered American grape varieties that were especially resistant to Phylloxera, and by 1871, French farmers began to import them and … Rootstock Breeding program is selecting phylloxera and root knot nematode resistance traits from the wild North American grape Kocsis L., Granett H., Walker M. A. In particular, the damage to the roots causes the grapevine to eventually die within a few years. Phylloxera is native to North America and was at the end of the 19th century accidently introduced in Europe. Phylloxera – also called Daktulosphaira vitifoliae, Phylloxera vastatrix, Viteus vitifoliae or Phylloxera vitifoliae – has a strong preference for the Vitis vinifera vines and affects both the roots and the leaves (Figure 1). Therefore, new rootstocks are needed that have a higher, or preferably complete, resistance to the phylloxera biotypes that are present in the geographical area of the vineyard. Previous research has already shown that a gene (a piece of DNA) located on chromosome 13 in the Börner rootstock (Vitis cinerea x Vitis riparia) provides an increased resistance to phylloxera of (probably) biotype C, which is the predominant phylloxera biotype present in Europe. of Hungarian phylloxera strains on Vitis riparia rootstocks. experience another wine-growing crisis as it happened in Europe in 19th century A. Phylloxera has been managed effectively since the use of resistant rootstocks in the late nineteenth century. A side view of an adult winged specimen (A), larvae on the roots (B) and eggs from the phylloxera laid in leaf galls (C). Am J Enol Vitic. The same analysis, but compared to the other parent, the Vitis Vinifera Riesling, does not show any significant associated parts of the DNA (no image shown). Dunlevy J., Clingeleffer P., and Smith H. (2019). © 2018-2020 Koen Klemann. Questions are being asked globally about the long-term stability of grape phylloxera resistance in commercial rootstocks. Rootstock selection can also affect potential wine quality by improving vine health (donating resistance or tolerance to various pests, diseases, and unfavorable environmental conditions). that have co-evolved with phylloxera and, as a result, they typically display However, a major disadvantage of these persevering phylloxera populations is that newer biotypes may emerge and the resistance to phylloxera of current rootstocks will disappear (even further). Do you always want to be kept informed of all WineScience articles? Foliar phylloxera are now widely spread in the mothervine plantings of grape rootstock nurseries in Yolo and Solano counties. program is utilising next generation genetic and molecular tools for developing new Rootstocks currently used in commercial vineyard production are derived To date, seven phylloxera populations – called biotype A to G – are known. The technology for this was optimized for vineyard locations and soil types, and has been amazingly successful ever since. are highly adapted to feeding on the roots of Vitis vinifera wine Powell K. S. and Hoffmann A. vineyard management tool for safeguarding vineyards from this devastating Researchers try to identify the pieces of DNA in the grapevine rootstocks that are responsible for their resistance to phylloxera. The association between DNA of Vitis cinerea C2-50 and resistance to phylloxera. Performance As a result of these newly emerging phylloxera biotypes, the currently used rootstocks are only partially resistant. Root-feeding stages are the most economically damaging. This gene originates from Vitis cinerea and was named RESISTANCE DAKTULOSPHAIRA VITIFOLIAE 1 or in short RDV1. Adelaide SA 5000 Subscribe now to the newsletter! Consequently, the use of phylloxera resistant rootstocks is an essential component of vineyard management. limit the options for replanting of infested vineyards. S., Robertson, E., Potter, I., & Powell, K. S. (2012). (2018) Genetic identification of SNP markers linked to a new grape phylloxera resistant locus in Vitis cinerea for marker-assisted selection. When infested, the vines react passively at the roots, producing little or no bile, thus depriving the pests of the basis for propagation. Phylloxera feeding can also occur on young feeder roots, resulting in the formation of characteristic nodosities. The situation for trunk disease could not be more different. The North American Vitis cinerea is also resistant to biotype A, but it is not known if this is also due to RDV1 or due to another gene in the grape genome. management: clonal lineages and population biology of Grape phylloxera. By the time the new phylloxera's ruse was up, it had spread across California, decimating vineyards and requiring their reconstitution on newer phylloxera-resistant rootstocks. Entomology. resistant rootstocks by using this knowledge. PO Box 280 for Risk Analysis of Grape phylloxera Daktulosphaira SNP markers tightly linked to root knot nematode phylloxera strains including G7, G19, G20 and G30. Figure 1. Rootstocks can also control vigor, yield, and fruit composition, playing a fundamental role in the overall success of vineyard operations. whether Vitis cinerea can also provide resistance to other Therefore, to re-establish the vineyards in Europe, these resistant North American vines were used as rootstocks on which the European Vitis vinifera grape varieties (e.g. or in California in the 1980s. Despite this long history, many questions remain about phylloxera's biology, its life cycle and how grape species and rootstocks resist its feeding. The 3309 is a medium-cycle rootstock and is susceptible to … Journal of Applied vitifoliae Fitch. Benheim, D., Rochfort, (2018b). However, it was noted that North American Vitis species were not sensitive to these insects. Grape phylloxera, Viteus vitifolii Shimer, were reared on excised grape roots maintained in petri‐dish chambers. Powell, K.S. Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, etcetera) were grafted. rootstocks to combat a changing climate and pest pressure is now being Upcoming studies will investigate “While it’s not clear if a similar strain exists in Australia, studies in Europe and California infer that phylloxera is evolving and becoming better adapted to Vitis riparia rootstocks, which includes Teleki 5C, SO4 and 101-14. As Christy Campbell points out in his book, Phylloxera: How Wine was Saved for the World, California, which was first attacked at about the same time as Europe, is suffering its second invasion. presence of RDV1 and RDV2 (and possibly other resistance genes) in their DNA, new Harsh winters were an insufficient safeguard here. Genetic studies seem to offer a solution in the development and realization of rootstocks with a higher resistance to phylloxera. Resistance results from three circumstances. Importing empty used grape bins or bulk tippers? parentage4,5,6,7,“ Harley said. Resistance of these rootstock varieties to leaf phylloxera form was important also in rootstock nur-series. What really benefits the winegrower is the cultivation of new more Smith, H.M., Clarke, C.W., Smith, B.P., Carmody, B.M., Thomas, M.R., Clingeleffer, Wine Australia. 7. (2002). The ability of these 1. Grafting to rootstocks began in the late 1800s, as the only effective means of combating the ravage being caused by the phylloxera infestation. This caused an almost complete destruction of the wine-growing areas in Europe. assisted breeding” can be used. Tel: (08) 8273 0550 University of California Cooperative Extension Newsletter (2012). Grape phylloxera belongs to the family Phylloxeridae in the order Hemiptera and is closely related to Aphididae (the true aphids) (Ortiz-Rivas and Martínez-Torres 2010). A LOD (“logarithm of the odds”; a statistical value) of more than 2.89 indicates that the association is significant. Figure 2 shows this analysis in which a clear relationship can be seen between the DNA on chromosome 14 of the Vitis cinerea C2-50 and the resistance in the F1 plants. Therefore Phylloxera resistant rootstock varieties have been also included in this trial. cinerea for marker-assisted selection. These particular species evolved in the presence of the phylloxera and so developed tolerance mechanisms that allowed them to continue to flourish in the presence of the insect. This low genetic Fortunately, phylloxera-resistant rootstocks have been available and have effectively defended vineyards against this pest for about 110 years. rootstocks. Phylloxera, the great plague of Europe is back! and Thomas, M.R. CSIRO research scientist Harley Smith told delegates at the recent Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference that the CSIRO Rootstock Breeding Team had identified and genetically mapped resistance traits for grape phylloxera and root knot nematode from the wild North American grape species Vitis cinerea. Breeding next generation rootstocks with durable pest resistance using DNA Figure 2. 5. The 3309 rootstock is considered resistant to Phylloxera. resistance. Wine regions fear few things more than phylloxera. six distinct families, with individuals in each family likely sharing similar The Phylloxera and Grape Industry Act 1995 provides the legislative foundation from which Vinehealth Australia obtains it powers and functions and is responsible to the South Australian Parliament through the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development.
