Agrimed No. 1 and Bolgheri: two new cypress varieties resistant to canker.

Abstract

Details are given of two new cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) clones resistant to the canker Seiridium cardinale. The clones (cv. Agrimed No. 1 and cv. Bolgheri) both exhibit greater resistance than others (such as cv. Florentia and cv. Etruria) as well as rapid growth and frost tolerance.
