Ohio State University researchers with the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center have found success in using grafting to improve tomato production.
"We chose tomato because it is susceptible to a number of field stresses, very important economically, and responds to grafting," said Matt Kleinhenz, an Ohio State University Extension vegetable crops specialist. "Still, other crops such as cantaloupe, watermelon and cucumber can also be grafted. So, what is learned with tomato grafting may also apply to these crops."
