Dr Baboo’s is an expert when it comes to rootstock, having completed his doctoral thesis based on work with 26 different commercial and three experimental rootstocks crosses, grown across three experimental sites in the La Clape and Montpellier, France, in Milazzo, Italy and in
Geisenheim, Germany.

After that he consulted for 18 small vineyards across Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Germany in rootstocks selection and rootstock and scion compatibility. In India he consulted for India’s most awarded winery, and in the one and a half years there, helped to plant more than 1475
hectares spread over four states and 17 districts with very varied soils, climate, and geography.

Some of us have been researching rootstocks for the UK, albeit in a realtively non-scientifc, but more practical way, for several decades.
