In the nursery the vines can be cultivated, irrigated and generally attended to much more perfectly than in the field. Rigid selection of vines for planting can be made, rendering it possible to have nothing in the vineyard but strong plants and perfect unions. As perfect stands can be obtained in vineyards the hrst year in any soil or season as when planting ordmary non-resistant vines. Unions of vines can be placed exactly where wanted. Land where the vineyard is to be planted can be used for other crops one year longer than when field grafting is adopted. All cultural operations during the first year are much less expensive than in vineyard grafting, as they are spread over a much smaller area- Two acres of nursery will produce enough bench grafts to plant too acres of vineyard. In short, starting a resistant vine- yard by means of bench grafts is much better than by any other method used at present, because it is least costly and gives best results. This is true whether the bench grafts are produced at home or bought at present market rates. Growers are earnestly cautioned, however, against planting any but first choice bench grafts; second and third choice are little better than field grafts- All that can be said in favor of nursery grafting and bench grafting roots, is that vines so produced are fairly good when bench grafting is impracticable. These methods permit root grafting with stocks which, owing to rooting difficulty, are very difficult to bench graft as cuttings. By their means resistant cut- tings too small to bench graft may be utili
