- ... Since 1963 when chestnut blight was recorded for the first time in Greece, the disease has spread into all 29 chestnut growing prefectures. As a result the national, annual chestnut production was reduced from 18,000 tons in the 1960s to 11,000 tons in 2005. A project for the application of biological control on a nationwide scale was funded and implemented during the period 2007-2009. Hypovirulen ...

- ... The ascomycete fungus, Cryphonectria parasitica (Murr.) Barr, is an important fungal pathogen of chestnut in Europe and North America. The fungus grows into the bark up to the cambium, causing typical diffuse cancers and the death of distal parts of the trunks or branches. The pathogen kills the infected tree branches and the rapid death of the entire tree take place which is causing high environm ...
