Cherry Leaf Roll (CLRV)

Trees infected with CLRV and Prunus necrotic ringspot virus develop small narrow leaves.  Shoot dieback and lack of terminal growth results in reduced fruit-bearing wood. Symptoms often resemble bacterial canker. Initially, symptoms appear on one or two scaffolds before spreading through entire tree or adjacent trees.
