For the production of the trees the rootstock M9 T337 is mainly used: It’s the most used rootstock in the world for the construction of intensive orchards.
The grafting of the trees is made in winter with winter or table grafting (knip trees) or in summer with the Chip Budding System. The bud wood is selected in our bud wood garden. Then we cut the buds and place it on the rootstock.
Specialized, experienced workers take over the various jobs during the year. Many jobs have to be done by hand.
One of the most important production phases is the branching of the trees, from which numerous lateral branches derive. For the customer is guaranteed an early production entrance with very high yields.
In winter the trees are removed from soil. The selection of the different quality classes (5+, 7+ and 8+ branches) is made in the same moment. Subsequently, the trees are still provided with a label. This promises the variety authenticity, virus-free and healthy trees.
Until the delivery to the customer, the plants are stored in the cold storage cells.
