A wound- and ethephon-inducible PR-10 gene subclass from apple is differentially expressed during infection with a compatible and an incompatible race of Venturia inaequalis
. Physiological and Molecular Plant Pathology 62: 3-12.
This fact is due mainly to the pressure caused by plagues such as the South American fruit fly Anastrepha fraterculus, the Oriental fruit moth Grapholita molesta, and the apple scab Venturia inaequalis
(BLANCHET et al., 2012).
Apple scab, caused by the fungus Venturia inaequalis
, is one of the most destructive diseases of apples throughout the world, causing up to 80% loss in yield without chemical intervention, which could include multiple classes of fungicides applied up to 22 times during the growing season .
Reduction of scab incidence (Venturia inaequalis
) in apple with prohexadione-Ca and trinexapac-ethyl, two growth regulating acylcyclohexanediones.

The RS103-130 variety is not genetically modified and has a naturally strong resistance to apple scab, also known as black spot, a disease caused by the fungus venturia inaequalis
which affects both the foliage and fruit.
