The incompatibility properties of two tumor-inducing (Ti) and seven tartrate (Tr) plasmids, derived from various Agrobacterium vitis strains, were characterized using incRh1, incRh2, incRh3, and incRh4 clones which were established for the identification and classification of Agrobacterium plasmids. The tested A. vitis plasmids could be allocated into four groups on the basis of their incompatibility with incRhl, incRh2, and incRh4 clones. The two octopine tumor-inducing plasmids, pTiAT6 and pTiAB3, expressed incompatibility both to incRh1 and to incRh2 clones. Three pTrs could not be allocated either to incRh1-4 and incAg1 or to the wide-host-range incP1, incQ, and incW groups.
