(2014): Comparison of self-rooted pear trees with pear trees grafted on common rootstocks
MITT KLOSTERNEUBURG. 2014; 64(3): 137-147.

In the spring of 2006, the pear cultivars, Boscxxxs Flaschenbirnexxx, Williams Christxxx and,Uta` were planted at the experimental orchard Haschhof of the HBLA und BA fur Wein- und Obstbau Klosterneuburg on the rootstocks ICirchensaller Mostbirne (Samling), Pyrodwarf, Farold 69, Quitte Adams (with interstem grafting) as well as ungrafted from in vitro culture. They were trained as spindle and tested under IP conditions. Losses among self-rooted trees of the three cultivars were fairly high (8 to 16 %).,Williams Christxxx yielded the significantly highest cumulative yield. Farold 69 and Samling proved to be the significantly higher performative rootstocks than others.,Utaxxx showed the significantly highest specific yield,,Boscxxxs Flaschenbirfie the lowest. Quitte Adams and Samling were the most fertile, self-rooted trees the least. Farold 69 had grown the most, whereas Quitte Adams showed the weakest growth. A strong interdependency between cultivar and rootstock was found with,Boscxxxs Flaschenbime on Farold 69, the growth was significantly stronger than that of,Williams Christxxx and,Uta` on this rootstock or,Uta` on Quitte Adams (significantly weaker growth).
