Strong, vigorous rootstock with a positive generative effect on the growth of the cultivar

grafted on it. An Estamino-graft results in a well-balanced plant with good generative growth.

It does not have an excessive vegetative effect on the cultivar grafted on it. The balance in plant

growth results in a steady production and all cultivars maintain size and productivity until the

end of the cultivation cycle. Estamino is definitely a rootstock for growers that have issues with

controlling excessive vegetative growth in their crops.

This rootstock is especially developed for non-heated conditions. Fortamino is recommended

for use when transplanting into hot growing conditions, because the strong root system

provides extra vegetative power to the plants in the early stage of growth, providing very good

leaf cover and excellent recovery after stress conditions. Grafting on Fortamino also has a

positive effect on the number of flowers per truss and higher average fruit weight.

In case a variety is resistant to more than one pathogen, the

individual resistance codes will be separated by the symbol “/”.

• If in a resistance code of a certain variety reference is made to

certain strains for which the resistance is claimed this means that

no resistance is claimed to other strains of the same pathogen.

pathogen for which the resistance is claimed this means that

resistance is claimed only to certain not further specified strains

of the pathogen and herewith disclaiming any guarantee that the

High resistance (HR) - plant varieties that highly restrict the growth

and development of the specified pest or pathogen undernormal

pest or athogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties.

These plant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or

damage under heavy pest or pathogen pressure.

Intermediate resistance (IR) - plant varieties that restrict the growth

and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit

a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to highly

resistant plant varieties. Intermediate resistant plant varieties will

still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant

varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or
