Under this agreement, CGCN-RCCV will maintain virus-tested cultivars from Plocher-Vines LLC in its G1 repository. There is already one Plocher-Vines cultivar, Petite Pearl, in the G1 repository and others may be added in the future, as demand dictates.
The material is available to any Canadian nursery that is part of the CGCN-RCCV long-term certification program and has a propagation/royalty license with Plocher-Vines LLC. The following two Canadian nurseries meet these two requirements and more may be added over time:
- Viticulture A&M
- Northshore Grapevine Nursery
