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.

Do's and Don'ts for Barn Snow Removal

Concerned about the snowload on your barn roof? Removal of significant snow accumulations off of a barn roof is best performed in a systematic way to reduce the risk of injury or death to both barn occupants and those working on the roof. Removing roof snow without a proper approach may actually cause more damage than if left alone in some cases by creating an unbalanced and/or concentrated roof loads. Read more and view drawings on how to safely and effectively remove snow from a barn roof.

New Video Helps to Promote the Work of the CVP

Many people in our community are not aware of the size or the impact of the Western New York vegetable industry on the state’s economy. We decided to do something about that! The Cornell Vegetable Program is proud to release a video that highlights vegetable production in our region – from fresh market to processing, from farms that are several thousand acres to just a few, from biodynamic growers to conventional – and provides an introduction to our team of Vegetable Specialists and how we assist growers in this area. We greatly appreciate that several WNY vegetable growers shared their thoughts on what the Cornell Vegetable Program means to them: Paul Fenton, Batavia; Mark Zittel, Eden; and Matt Mortellaro, Elba. The video was produced by videographer, James Monahan. Watch the video and leave us a comment!
