Rootstocks,varieties and plants for acidic soils

Acidic soils are referred to as soils whose Ph is less than or equal to 6.5 and they are typical of mountains and foothill areas, such as Alps or Apennines and in some hilly areas in Latium and Campania. These soils are generally very fertile, rich in organic matter and with a good water holding capacity. The species that best adapt to this type of soils are the Actinidia, strawberry, cherry, and apple trees.

If an irrigation system is present, these soils are particularly suitable for dwarfing rootstocks, e.g. Gisela®5-Gisela®6, since they are able to boost the plant vigour.

Which Plants for Acidic Soils? For peach, apricot and plum trees, semi-dwarfing rootstocks such as Puebla Adesoto or Rootpac®R can also be used in addition to the usual Gf677 and Mirabolano29c. For apple trees, traditional M9 is extremely compatible to this type of soil, as well as all the pear trees quinces among which ba29 is particularly recommended.
