comparison with isoline


The purposes of the field trial are:
1) to evaluate the effects of the transgenic rootstocks on growth, flowering, fruit setting and fruit quality of the three cultivars grafted onto them in comparison with the untransformed control rootstock for commercial potential.
2) to evaluate the stability of the modified trait (rooting ability).
3) to evaluate the rooting ability of the transgenic rootstocks themselves by stooling. (JRC 2004)
