The UCB1 rootstock: agronomic characteristics

The UCB1 rootstock is the result of the hybridization carried out by the University of Davis (California, USA) between P.atlantica x P. integerrima.

It is a vigorous rootstock that guarantees the productive precocity of the plantation. It has a high resistance to cold, to armillaria and is resistant to Verticillium dahliae K.

It supports limestone soils well, and has a medium tolerance to saline.

The Platinum rootstock: agronomic characteristics Pitachios

Selected for its vigor superior to UCB 1, for its tolerance to salinity and for its resistance to low temperatures.

Very similar to UCB 1 in most of its characteristics, given its same genetic origin. Widely disseminated in California in the last 10-15 years.
