Cuttings from a neighbor's vineyard #160427

Asked November 14, 2013, 1:06 PM EST

In my area it is not uncommon for a vineyard owner to take cuttings from a neighbor's vineyard to develop own-rooted vines for their own vineyard. Are there any conditions under which this would be an acceptable practice?

Oklahoma County Oklahoma

Expert Response

As long as the varieties to be grown own-rooted are not susceptible to - or are at least tolerant to - phylloxera, this practice should be fine. For example, Concord cuttings are planted on their own roots in the Lake Erie Region.
