Grafting vegetable plants is becoming standard in more and more countries. The advantages like yield boost and quality improvement are obvious and make grafting easy to calculate. Rootstocks normally have much better resistance to soil-borne pathogens and share this robustness with the main variety by grafting. Compatibility with the main variety is crucial.
At agro-TIP we furthermore pay attention to better nutrient uptake of the rootstock and – even more important – to upgrade quality of the harvested goods. Achieving higher content of ingredients or enhanced internal quality is possible as well. Even earliness can be improved when choosing the right rootstock.
