Plant viruses are group of pathogens that cause and important loses in different fruit production and they have and great economic importance. They are obligate parasite form and for their replication they used plant cells. One of the most important virus on many Prunus species, causing great economic losses is Plum pox virus (PPV), causal agent of Sharka disease.
Plum pox potyvirus (PPV) is a filamentous virus, that can be a part of phloem tissue in fruit-production species of Prunus, including apricots, peaches and plums. Since its discovery, Sharka has been considered as a calamity in plum orchards. In highly susceptible plum varieties presents in Macedonia, such as Požegača and Stenlej, PPV causes a premature fruit drop and reduces fruit quality, which leads to total yield loss. The same symptoms and loses are obviously in the peach and cherry garden. Eight PPV strains (PPV-M, PPV-D, PPV-EA, PPV-C, PPV-Rec, PPV-W, PPV-T and PPV-CR) have been recognized so far. Three major strains (PPV-M, PPV-D and PPV-Rec) are the most widely dispersed and occur frequently in many European countries. Other strains are of minor importance due to their limited host preferences or geographic distribution.
