- ... Recently we have demonstrated that there are anatomical differences between dwarfing and vigorous peach rootstocks. These differences in xylem anatomy have been linked to the vigour control capacity of the specific rootstocks. Previously we showed that dwarfing peach rootstocks generally have lower mid-day stem water potentials and that this limits shoot growth during the most active period for ve ...
