    Have you tried the rootstock Adafuel in flood areas? I don't have floods I'm just looking for a friend
    "‘Adafuel’ showed the highest vigor with 66 cm of trunk girth. After 8 crops, the highest accumulated yield was obtained on ‘GF 677’ with 411 kg/tree followed by ‘Adafuel’ with 405 kg/tree. The lowest yields were obtained on ‘Brompton’ and ‘Puebla de Soto 101’ with 219 and 214 kg/tree respectively."

    Jungle Jane, of the hybrid rootstocks of almond x peach , the two varieties most used are:

    - GxN 15 Garnem
    - GF 677

    Due to the homogeneity of the crops.

    Adafuel, in spite of being a rootstock suitable for all types ov varieties of stone fruit , was used years ago, practically in exclusivity like rootstock for almond tree, and later has been substituted by the two previously mentioned.

    Both GxN15 Garnem and GF-677 are rootstocks that are quite adapted to the crop in dry conditions (without irrigation), for certain varieties of almonds, such as the "Guara" variety, but with other more productive varieties, for example The variety "Lauranne", it is necessary that the plantation is in irrigated conditions , and for stone fruit the irrigation in Spain is "obligatory".

    Production is not measured in kilograms / tree, because the more dwarf rootstocks need a smaller planting frame than the more vigorous rootstocks, so that production is measured in kilograms / hectare.

    And the choice of rootstock depends of the soil and weather conditions.

    I personally do not recommend the Adafuel rootstock, the hybrid rootstock that I like best and that best suits my terrain is GxN15 Garnem.

    But if you are interested in getting Adafuel rootstock, there are some nurseries in Spain that still market it.

    Best regards

    Hi Jose, and welcome to the forum. I dream about having an orchard like yours! I'm from New Zealand originally, it looks like you have a lot of New Zealand apples in your collection.

    Josť, that is a huge collection of apple trees! Where do you get them from? Do you do a lot of grafting yourself?
    Spain is a big country: where I live, we get frosts, floods and snow, as well as raging heat.

    Snoop Puss , many of the varieties of apples have been bought in nurseries for professionals, and many other varieties not available in European nurseries, I have grafted them (It is not ethical to say in an open forum how to get the graft cuttings ) .


    fishpond , do not be surprised, the apples, pears, and cherry trees are not the "strong point" of my orchard , I have infinitely more interesting varieties, but these varieties can not be said or displayed in open forum.

    Best regards

    I love a good mystery - I suspect Bayer, Syngenta, Monsanto, DuPont are keeping a close eye on this thread.
