NSP - Grafting


Grafting is a method of asexual plant propagation that join plant parts for them to live together.  so they will grow as one plant. Normally the method has been largely applied to propagate trees that will not root well as cuttings or whose own root systems are not strong enough or resistant to several soil-borne pathogens.

Now the method is used for other crops, as vegetables, such as solanaceous plants (tomato, eggplant and pepper) and cucurbits (melon, cucumber and watermelon). Grafting provides the plants the necessary resistance against various pathogens, and it is economically feasible.  the plant  can compete with MeBr in production, reliability and price. This technique is widely used in Spain, Morocco, Rumania, and Greece among others.
