Comments In addition to the untreated plant material in the regular FPS Foundation Vineyard, Rubired FPS 02 is also available from FPS’ Next Generation Vineyard (also known as the Goheen block). Vines of this selection were created for the Next Generation Vineyard using (macro) shoot tip tissue culture therapy to eliminate bacterial contaminants such as Agrobacterium vitis (crown gall disease). For a definition of the process used to create the vines for the Next Generation Vineyard, see the article entitled ‘Micro- vs. Macroshoot Tip Tissue Culture Therapy for Disease Elimination in Grapevines’ in the October 2010 edition of the FPS Grape Program Newsletter, at http://fps.ucdavis.edu/, in the Publications section.
