Technical Abstract: The USDA Agricultural Research Service has developed three grape rootstocks that are resistant to many types of nematodes. These rootstocks vary in mineral uptake, vigor and production. 10-27A had similar vigor to Harmony rootstock but lower yield. 6-19B had lower vigor than Harmony, similar to own rooted Thompson Seedless.
