Both grapevine vein clearing virus and grapevine red blotch virus are detrimental pathogens on grapevines in the Midwestern United States. The most effective method of control for these viruses is early detection and removal of infected vines. A rapid and equipment-free method of detecting grapevine vein clearing virus and grapevine red blotch virus was developed using the isothermal DNA amplification technique, recombinase polymerase amplification, in conjunction with lateral flow strips. The method yields testing results under 35 minutes and can be performed onsite, and thus provides a rapid and grower-friendly diagnostic tool for preventing diseases caused by the two viruses.
