GraftingWhat is Plant Grafting?
Grafted plants are formed when the tissue from two plants are combined through attaching the stems. The fruit-bearing qualities of the scion (flowering part) are combined with the strong, vigorous qualities of the root stock to produce a superior version of the fruit-bearing plant.
With this innovative, non-chemical, and natural method of enhancing crop quality, growers and grafters are working together to find methods that are preserving maximum flavor and quality while combatting plant disease and sustaining a high output.
Benefits of Grafting
- Improved resistance to airborne and soil borne disease for healthier plants
- Stronger rootstock to enhance water and nutrient absorption through soil and rootstock
- Stronger, healthier plant leads to greater fruit yield and longer harvest
