Routpower (Hybrid)


Routpower is an F1. hybrid squash (Cucurbita maxima x Cucurbita Moschata) used as a cucumber and watermelon rootstock. This rootstock has a high germination rate with quick and uniform emergence. Regardless of the grafting method, it provides excellent compatibility at a high rate of engraftment. Routpower has a strong root system in the field, providing high resistance to Fusarium wilt, and a stronger plant in stressed conditions, preserving the taste qualities of the fruit.

  • Interspecies hybrid Maxima Moschata rootstock for Watermelons, Melons, and Cucumbers.
  • It ensures healthy plants in adverse climatic conditions and high yield, preserving the taste qualities of the fruit.
  • Highly resistant to Fusarium on Watermelon FON 0, 1, 2; Cucumber FOC 0,1,2; and Melon FOM 0,1,2

Resistance Terminology

HR = High resistance: plant varieties that highly restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal pest or pathogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties. These plant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or damage under heavy pathogen or pest pressure.

IR = Intermediate resistance: plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to “highly resistant” varieties. Intermediately resistant plant varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pathogen or pest pressure.

T = Tolerance: The ability of a plant variety to endure abiotic stress without serious consequences for growth, appearance and yield.
