Isolation were made from affected wood tissues from branches and trunks on PDA, MEA and OA media. In this study, 64 fungi isolates were recovered and identified as Phaeoacremonium parasiticum, Phaeomoniella chlamydospora, Fomitiporia mediterranea, Fusarium sp. and Phoma sp. Pathogenesity tests were carried out for Pm. Parasiticum, P. chlamydospora and F. mediterranea under field and greenhouse conditions. within 6 months after inoculation of cuttings, symptoms developed as sever defoliatin and wilting under greenhouse conditions. F. mediterranea caused white wood decay while Pm. parasiticum and P. chlamydospora produced wood discoloration in inoculated grapevines. in the field The pathogens were re-isolated and identified from inoculated grapevines after symptoms observed.
