In general, the local production of vine propagation material is minimal, mostly cuttings are made or imported grafts are planted.
Since wine blight (phylloxera) is present in many places, in the interests of economic cultivationtion in heavy soils the future lies in the local production of propagation material; graft production is the solution. Hungary has high-quality grape varieties and understock and graft production technology to produce them. A joint venture to be created can produce high quality grape propagation material and supply the demand. The venture and the applied technology is suitable for using either local, native or non-native grape varieties of foreign origin during the process. It is important to mention that this enterprise is economical, has relatively low capital requirements and commercially profitable.
STAVRON undertakes to set up a joint venture to produce vine propagating materials.
