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.

Announcements

Video Released: New York State Produce Auctions

Currently, there are 6 produce auctions in New York State. These auctions are aggregation points that allow local farmers to sell their produce in wholesale lots to buyers from across the region. The Cornell Vegetable Program has supported the development and growth of these auctions and acts as the educational lead for the majority of the NYS produce auctions.

To document the economic impact of produce auctions on agriculture, local businesses, family farms, and produce buyers, the Cornell Vegetable Program worked with HarvestNY to survey top sellers and buyers. 

A new Cornell Vegetable Program video shares general information about produce auctions, how buyers and sellers use the auctions to expand their businesses, and how local communities benefit from them. Watch it now!

2015 Cornell Vegetable Guidelines Available

The 2015 edition of the Cornell Commercial Vegetable Production Guidelines is now available. This annual publication provides up-to-date vegetable crop production information for New York State. It has been designed as a practical guide for vegetable crop producers, crop consultants, and ag suppliers. In addition to the annually revised pesticide and crop production information, this edition also includes revised soil management guidelines; adding mode of action/group numbers to all pesticide listings; updated Colorado potato beetle resistance management information; totally revised organic vegetable production information; and the addition of western bean cutworm in sweet corn and western flower thrips in tomatoes as pests of concern. 

NOTE: Beginning in 2015, Vegetable Guidelines will no longer be offered for free online. Instead, you will have the option to purchase just a print copy ($33 plus shipping), online version ($33), or a bundle of a print copy plus online access ($46 plus shipping). You can order this publication, or other Cornell Guidelines from the Cornell Store at Cornell University at 800-624-4080.
