Apple Rootstocks

Our apple trees are grafted on a number of clonal rootstocks that are selected to meet the
demands of our many growers throughout Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. We use stocks
from EMLA, Budagovsky and Geneva rootstock programs.

Rootstock selection is an important part of orchard management strategy. Each has its own
advantages in addition to controlling the size of the mature tree.

Disease and insect resistance, hardiness, precocity, anchorage and soil adaptability are all
important characteristics to consider when planning your site.

Also, individual apple cultivars may perform differently when paired with different rootstocks. Learn more
