A greenhouse experiment was conducted to study the relative drought tolerance of grape rootstocks (Dogridge, Salt Creek, 1613-C, 1616-C, 1103-P and SO4) based on chlorophyll content and chlorophyll stability index. Irrigation was applied at 0.3, 0.5 and 0.7 bar. The contents of chlorophyll a, b and total chlorophyll, and chlorophyll stability index decreased with the increase in water stress. Based on reduction of percentage in chlorophyll content and chlorophyll stability index, the relative drought tolerance of grape rootstocks could be ranked as 1103-P > Dogridge > Salt Creek > 1613-C > 1616-C > SO4.
