Bending strength of small diameter woody roots of apple rootstocks in relation to poor anchorage


, : Bending strength of small diameter woody roots of apple rootstocks in relation to poor anchorage. Journal of Hill Research 8(2): 256-258

An evaluation was made of the bending strength of surface or near-surface lateral roots of apple rootstocks (maiden trees of Greensleeves and Cox's Orange Pippin budded on M.9 rootstock (which often gives a poor anchorage to the tree), and of Cox's Orange Pippin budded on MM.106 rootstock) growing in the field in the UK.

A non-linear relationship was recorded between load at failure and root cross-sectional area for 3 types of roots in apple rootstocks. It can be concluded, as might be expected that apple roots of smaller diameter bend very easily compared with th...

The results from present investigation revealed a significant linear relationship between root cross-sectional area and load at failure over the cross-sectional root size range studied in M.9 and MM.106 apple rootstock. Negative relationship was o...

Deep planting had no adverse ef...
