Vegetable grafting: research-based information portal


Date: 22/05/2013


This portal, maintained by the USDA, is designed to deliver current research-based information on the preparation, use, evaluation and purchase of grafted vegetable plants. Its goal is to assist the makers, distributors and users of grafted vegetable plants by providing current information that addresses specific obstacles to their success. Grafting emphasizes the use of genetics in overcoming abiotic and biotic crop stress and grafted plants can be used in vegetable operations of nearly all sizes and types. In many regions and systems, grafted vegetable plants routinely outperform their non-grafted counterparts in terms of vigour, stress tolerance and/or yield. Grafted plants can be used by nearly all growers of tomato, melon and other crops.
