The efficacy of hot water treatment for sanitation of rooted grafts infected with Agrobaterium vitis was evaluated. Pathogen identification was performed using in vitro culture and molecular assay with Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) - Results showed that the hot water treatment on a broad scale was completely ineffective for obtaining rooted grafts free from the bacterium. Therefore, a serious problem raises on the possibility of assuring the absence of A. vitis from the grapevine propagation material, especially because the pathogen is often latent in the plant.
