Several viral pathogens are common in Eastern vineyards. Tomato ringspot impacted own-rooted hybrids planted in 70s and 80s; Leafroll disease may be the most significant current problem, and Grapevine Red Blotch is a newly-identified issue. Pathologists in New York, Michigan, and Virginia have surveyed vineyards to determine their prevalence and impact.
