Comparative physiology of apple rootstocks. II. The effect of pH and aeration on the growth of Malling apple rootstocks in water cultures

Comparative physiology of apple rootstocks. II. The effect of pH and aeration on the growth of Malling apple rootstocks in water cultures

Ann. Bot. Lond, 20: 553-62. bibl. 11

Three Malling apple rootstocks, M.IX, M.II, and M.XVI, were grown in aerated and non-aerated nutrient solutions at pH 3.6, 4.0, and 5.5, and their growth and survival compared with rootstocks grown in sand and in soil. No plants survived in the non-aerated cultures owing to severe bacterial and fungal attack on the roots. In the aerated series a marked difference in susceptibility of rootstocks to root infection was found, M.XVI being considerably more resistant than M.II or M.IX.
