Tomato grafting field day at Howell’s Pumpkin Patch
Date and Time: 18 July, 2014; 6 to 8pm
Grafting in the fruit industry is very common primarily to control plant size and disease resistance in the U.S. Research also suggests that it is an effective tool in vegetable production to increase yield, soil salinity tolerance, and pathogen resistance. The field day will showcase an ongoing tomato grafting study at the farm.
