Breeding process of cherry rootstocks aims to obtain a large spectrum of vigour, which new rootstocks give to trees by grafting. The interactions of rootstock to varieties and expression of their compatibility are complicated, but essential in choosing the best combination variety / rootstock (Hrotkó, 2004; Sitarek, 2006). Making a database support for optimal graft combinations and designation of the most valuable biotypes in terms of agro-productivity potential is a step forward in achieving sustainable fruit systems.
