Our Rootstocks

 

The rootstock is the essential element that gives our varieties the balance between vigour and productivity depending on the soil and production conditions.

In addition to the historical range, GRADILIS offers the innovative rootstocks of the Geneva® series.

These new rootstocks with multiple advantages, bring productivity and resistance to certain pests as well as Apple Replant Diseases (ARD)
