Almond Compatibility with Marianna 26–24 Rootstock

The plum rootstock, Marianna 26–24, is used where oak root fungus is a problem and on occasion where soils are too heavy for almond or peach rootstock species. There is a considerable difference in the degree of compatibility of almond varieties on this rootstock and this affects productivity.
