|| Botrytis cinerea|
||Human pathogen; plant pathogen; of practical use|
||Genus name: .
Species epithet: .
||This fungus is necrotrophic, i.e. it lives on dead plant tissue after killing the plant itself.|
||Gray mold rot on plants in general and noble rot on grapes. Respiratory allergic reaction in hypersensitive grape growers.
|Hosts/substrate||Disease/effect||Clinical picture or result|
|Wine grape||Botrytis bunch rot||In humid weather, a gray-brown coating forms on the grapes|
|Wine grape||Noble rot||The noble rot occurs when drier conditions follow a humid weather period and the grapes then shrink into raisin-like shapes.|
|Other cultivated plant species||Grey mould rot||In humid weather, a gray-brown coating forms on infested parts of the plant.|
|Humans||"Winegrowers lung", which is a rare form of hypersensitivity pneumonitis.||A respiratory allergic reaction.|

|Comment:||If you let gray mold develop for a while on grapes and form so-called Noble rot, the grapes will release water and shrink, giving sweeter grapes and a different character to the wine. Sauternes, Spätlese and Tokay are wines that have been produced in this way.|
