The chloride status of the grapevine can be an important factor in vine health and production in the Murray River irrigation areas of Australia.

Several vine rootstocks were under test in these areas to determine which were most suitable for use in soils infested by the root knot nematode.

This paper reports an investigation into the chloride content of Sultana vines on these rootstocks at various sites, to examine the effects of rootstocks on chloride status.

Self grafted sultanas did not differ from ungrafted in chloride status.

There were significant differences between the various effective rootstocks.

The degree of reduction of chloride concentration was better than 50 per cent for Dogridge and 1613 stocks, but about 75 per cent for Salt Creek and 101-14.
