ROOTSTOCKS

Seedling rootstocks

• Zutano


CLONAL ROOTSTOCKS


Clonal trees are subject to a royalty and also require a signed non-propagation agreement:

• Bounty - subject to $3.95 + GST per tree royalty payment
• Dusa - subject to $4.00 + GST per tree royalty payment
• Latas - subject to $4.00 + GST per tree royalty payment

Growers also require a P-PIN from the Avocado Industry Council (AIC) to purchase clonal trees. Any person growing avocados for commercial purposes in New Zealand may apply for membership and will be granted a Property Identification Number (P-PIN) for their orchard – whether you are taking over ownership of an existing orchard; are developing a new orchard or leasing an orchard. This P-PIN is used for traceability purposes and to hold historical data about your orchard. For more information visit the Avocado Industry Council website or phone 0800 AVOCADO / 0800 286 2236.
