Grafting

Of the 100,000 rootstocks that Combinatie Mauritz plants annually, some are bud-grafted in the summer or we use chip budding. Another part of the rootstocks is grafted in the open field in the spring by means of triangular grafting. The remaining part is grown as a seedling.

Even outside of the conventional budding months of July and August, we perform budding with winter wood that is stored in a cold room and ‘set’ by late March or early April.
