Project description
Richter 110 rootstocks (700 per treatment) were drenched prior to grafting for 1 h in 40 L suspensions of benomyl, phosphoric acid, Trichoderma spp. (Trichoflow and Plant Health Products (PHP) Trichoderma), Bacillus spp., or clean tap water (control). Aside from the chemical or biological treatment, one batch was drenched in hot water (50°C) for 30 minutes. Following the various treatments, the rootstocks were air-dried before Cabernet Sauvignon was bench-grafted (Omega) onto the treated rootstocks. Following a hot callusing process, equal batches of vines from each treatment were planted in a greenhouse and in two nurseries (Rawsonville and Citrusdal). Percentage callus and shoot length were determined at this stage, and it was concluded that none of these treatments affected callusing negatively. Isolations to determine the percentage of black goo fungi in the rootstocks, however, showed that, although not statistically significant, hot water treatment reduced the percentage black goofungi from 1.98% in the control to 0.22%. At the end of the growing season, the vines were removed from the nurseries and greenhouse, percentage take and root and shoot mass determined. Although results varied, it was concluded that none of the treatments affected these parameters significantly. The main aim of this project, however, is to determine whether these treatments decrease the percentage of black goo fungi in rootstocks. This objective is currently being completed and data gathered for statistical analyses. The results will be incorporated in the final research report of this project.
