The VITIPRO members have mother grapevines and grafts at their disposal that allow them to realize lots of different assemblings in order to come up at best to the winemakers’ needs.

Choosing a stock for grafting that corresponds at best to your soil and climate is of the utmost importance if you want your vineyard plantation to thrive.
The most important limiting factors are :

- Limestone resistance

Limestone resistance is determined by 2 values : the percentage of active calcium and the IPC (Indice de Pouvoir Chlorosant - chlorose provoking factor). The percentage of active calcium contains only the fine and soft elements of calcium carbonate that are harmful to the grapewine and cause freezing of iron, that means chlorose. Furthermore, certain soils with an important percentage of calcium may show in the same time a lack of iron easy to extract. Depending on the type of stock for grafting, this may increase chlorose risk. The IPC measures this risk.

- Robustness
It must be appropriate to the soil fertility and to the final product you wish to obtain: cru, appellation or vin de pays. It may also be determined according to special specification data made up between the producer and the one who launches the product.

- Dryness resistance It depends on soil texture and structure but also on rooting of the stock which may be running (less resistant) or plunging (more resistant)
