Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:
Field budding of grapevines has been practiced for years, especially in non-irrigated areas. The resistant rootstock becomes established more quickly and its roots explore the soil more quickly when it has its own top, rather than when it is a benchgraft with a different leaf system.
