Excerpt from American Vines (Resistant Stock): Their Adaptation, Culture, Grafting and Propagation

The translation of the book which Messrs. Raymond Dubois and Edmund H. Twight are now presenting to California viti culturists is a summary of the efforts accomplished by the viticulturists of France in the struggle against phylloxera, and of the new knowledge they have definitely gained for the reconstitution of vineyards. This knowledge has been revised to date for the present-translation, and all new facts which actually permit to direct the reconstitution of vineyards are brought together in this California translation.

The viticulturists of California are practically working under the same conditions as the viticulturists of the South of France, therefore the facts acquired in that region Should be applied in their vineyards. These facts are simple, and consist, above all, in having recourse to the American vines most resistant to phylloxera, that is to say, in using pure species (v. Riparia, V. Rupestris, V. Berlandieri), or hybrids of these species (v. Riparia X V. Rupestris, V. Rupestris V. Berlandieri, and V. Riparia X V. Berlandieri). The essential condition is to select different graft-bearers, accord ing to the diverse classes of soils, and we trust that this book will assist California viticulturists in that direction.
