Substantial developments in wine and grape markets worldwide have resulted in a gradual increase in vineyards planting. This case synchronously increased the demand for grape planting materials. Environmentally healthy applications in the production of vigorous planting material are basic subjects of adaptation in sustainable agriculture. In this study, effects of HerbaGreen (a 100% natural product containing 40% CaO, 4% SiO2, 1% MgO and 1% Fe2O3 in 1 μm granules) spraying on shoot development characteristics of one year old grape rootstocks 140 Ru, 99 R and 41 B were investigated during nursery production in glasshouse. HerbaGreen pulverization resulted in the formation of longer shoots across the rootstocks, varying from 51.4 cm (99 R) to 53.4 cm (140 Ru) while shoot lengths of the control plants were 35.6, 38.5 and 39.1 cm for 41 B, 140 Ru and 99 R, respectively. Besides, certain vegetative features such as shoot development level and lateral shoot number were also improved by application, depending on the responses of genotypes. General observations suggest that HerbaGreen would be beneficial in production of robust saplings by accelerating vegetative development without environmental hazard and therefore would be recommended to use in sustainable viticulture practices.
