Avocado rootstock breeding, especially in relation to Phytophthora

Acta Horticulturae: 237-240
Avocado rootstock breeding, especially in relation to Phytophthora
Rootstocks resistant to Ph. cinnamomi are being sought in California and Central and South America. Several compatible lines with moderate resistant have already been identified and used in crossing experiments. Other desirable traits are listed, and genetically superior sources of them are noted.
