As many of you are aware, the 2018 DSSH required all AIPs to add “Rootstock” to the Producer’s Pre-Acceptance Worksheet (PAW) and the 2018 CIH requires it to be completed for all crops except avocados, blueberries, and cranberries.
For grapes, the CIH requires information on the type of Phylloxera resistant rootstock (e.g. susceptible, AXR-e, etc.)
Please ensure that the appropriate rootstock designation for each block is entered on the PAW and in GlobalAgWorks. For policies that have already been processed without this information, we will work with you to go back and key those in the system. If you cannot determine the Rootstock for the blocks, “Unknown” will be an acceptable answer while the information is being obtained.
