Abstract
A decade ago, shoot proliferation symptoms (i.e., witches’ broom) in carrots were believed to be the cause of ‘Candidatus Phytoplasma’ and Spiroplasma infection, yet in recent years this association appeared to have weakened, and a closer association was found with the yet-unculturable, psyllid-transmitted Gram-negative bacterium ‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’. In Israel, carrots are grown throughout the year, yet shoot proliferation symptoms tend to appear only in mature plants and mos
