NOW AVAILABLE ON DVDGrafting of vegetable seedlings is used to overcome soil-borne diseases and pests, and to add extra vigor to the plants under various environmental stress conditions. While vegetable grafting in North America is used mainly to increase yields of greenhouse tomato (including hydroponics), there is increasing interest among growers in the use of grafted plants in open field production.
In this DVD, Mark Kroggel, a horticultural technologist and Research Specialist at the School of Plant Sciences, University of Arizona, explains and demonstrates three different grafting methods as well as tips for healing and handling grafted plants. This step-by-step introduction is suitable for beginners and as classroom material to learn a unique propagation technology used for vegetables.
Directed and Produced by Dr. Chieri Kubota, Professor, School of Plant Sciences and CEAC faculty.
