The investigation of hazelnut infestation with Apple mosaic virus (ApMV) was carried out in the years 2001, 2003, and 2004, on Corylus avellana L., C. maxima Mill., C. americana Walt., and C. colurna L. trees cultivated in plantations, collections, cottage gardens, allotments, urban greenery, and originating from natural habitat. All together, 532 plants representing 27 cultivars and not specified plant material from amateurish plantation and growing wild, were tested for the presence of ApMV using ELISA test. The presence of ApMV was detected in all tested trees of ‘Negret’ and in a single tree of clone 104 E. The disease symptoms were noted in affected trees only in the year 2004, characterized by moderate temperatures in May; the symptoms took the form of chlorosis, chlorotic lines and ringspots.
