re: durability, ais points
Jim said - <<However, the plant durability 15 that I was talking about really
is related to dependable performance, vigor, not demanding pampering, and
performing in spite of temperature extremes. Rot is not mentioned
specifically, but it clearly says that obvious susceptibility to disease is
cause for disqualifying the variety from any consideration for awards
[even if all the other 85 points are perfect].>>
Thanks for the added info. What constitutes 'obvious susceptibility'? From
all the comments on the list server of what those of us with rot problems
'ought to be doing' to prevent/cure rot, sounds like 'demanding pampering' to
me. But I guess what one person might consider pampering would be normal
routine to someone else.
Do most people in AIS think/say the point system is working the way it's
supposed to for durability?
