This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in all regions develop successful grafted tomato propagation systems. The use of grafted tomatoes is on the rise in both conventional and organic production systems, and this technology could also provide a niche market for propagators that cater to home garden markets. We will talk about the tube-grafting technique, which is most preferred by commercial grafters worldwide. In this session, you will learn about the many of the tips, tricks, and techniques to carryout successful on-farm grafting.
