UC Pest Management Guidelines
Rootstock Tolerance to Disorders and Pathogens
(Reviewed 1/07, updated 1/07)
In this Guideline:
Use rootstocks that areresistant to, or tolerant of, key disorders and diseases, such as avocado root rot (Phytophthora cinnamomi). Because rootstock cultivars resistant to one problem may be more susceptible to another, consider planting a mixture of the recommended rootstock cultivars.
