 Intensive Planting Rootstock

Origin

A strain of M9 selected in New Zealand.

Influence on Scion Habit

Medium to high vigour selection of M9. DSIR M9 has a dwarfing influence on all scions budded/grafted onto it. It induces cropping early in the life of the tree, with larger and earlier ripening fruit particularly in the early years. Good tolerance to most soil conditions, though not suitable for dry, light soils.

Disease Resistance

Resistant to collar rot (Phytophthora cactorum).
