Rootstock and scion interact to affect apple tree performance: results from the 1990 NC-140 cultivar/rootstock trial



Rootstock and scion interact to affect apple tree performance: results from the 1990 NC-140 cultivar/rootstock trial



Acta Horticulturae (557): 41-46



In 1990 (February-May), trials were established at 13 sites in the United States, using four apple cultivars (Smoothee Golden Delicious, Nicobel Jonagold, Empire, and Law Rome) in all combinations on five rootstocks (M.9 EMLA, B.9, Mark, O.3, and M.26 EMLA). After nine growing seasons, rootstock and scion cultivar interacted significantly to affect trunk cross-sectional area and yield efficiency but not yield per tree, fruit size, or tree survival.
