Grafting Tomatoes Video: The Motivation and Benefits of Grafting

Grafting Tomatoes Video: The Motivation and Benefits of Grafting

As soil based production of tomatoes continues in tunnels and greenhouses, risk of root-zone diseases, insects and nutrient imbalances increase. Grafting, the combination of two separate cultivars into one plant, is one management approach to these challenges. 

Learn more about the motivations and benefits of grafting tomatoes in this video of Judson Reid, Extension Vegetable Specialist for the Cornell Vegetable Program.



The Cornell Vegetable Program has developed additional resources on How to Graft Tomatoes for Soil-Based Production in Greenhouses and High Tunnels.

This award recognizes individuals/teams who have demonstrated leadership in developing a highly innovative and responsive extension/outreach program that addresses stakeholder needs. The Awards Committee cited the excellent synergy among members of the Cornell Vegetable Program team in addressing the needs of New York's vegetable production operations and the many activities our team collectively organize to successfully connect Cornell faculty and their research with the real-world needs of vegetable producers. Our team will be recognized at an awards ceremony on November 10.
