Compaction in soil may be due to factors associated with soil formation or geology, or it may have been caused by mechanical pressure from machinery or by deposits by transport and ground-levelling vehicles. g. by trenching or deep cultivation) before a new orchard is set up. Dwarfing rootstocks for apples and pears (M9, M27, quince C), elder and small fruit trees are particularly sensitive to soil compaction. Possible ways of loosening the soil The use of soil tillage equipment before planting depends on the results of the soil tests.

The aims of current rootstock breeding are therefore to combine as many positive properties as possible in one rootstock (control of shoot growth, rapid commencement of cropping, reduction in biennial bearing, improvement in fruit quality, and resistance to winter cold, diseases and pests). If there is a danger of fireblight, not only the cultivar but also the rootstock should be resistant to this disease. M9 CLONE ROOTSTOCKS. Much breeding work at present is concentrated on the M9 rootstock. ).

It is thus the ideal rootstock for small-crowned tree forms. M9 is very sensitive to lack of oxygen, and on poor sites (with waterlogging) the rootstock tends to early exhaustion. M9 needs very good soil. There are a large number of M9 clone rootstocks, which vary widely in vigour. This rootstock is less demanding than M9 in terms of soil requirements and has rather better anchorage. M26 virus-free is about 50% more vigorous than M9, and this is why the commencement of cropping is later. M26. © CAB International 2003.
