Propagation by Grafting
In some instances, the use of grafted plants may be preferable
when growing certain culitvars with root systems susceptible to
disease ridden soils. In addition to disease tolerance, these
new and improved rootstocks will enhance plant growth in harsher
growing conditions and may also improve yields. The first photo
has a desired tomato cultivar grafted on a rootstock that has very
vigourous growth and is resistant to several soil borne diseases.
The second photo has a cantaloupe melon grafted on a squash rootstock.
The squash rootsock is more tolerant to soil compaction, colder soil
temperature and disease. It should be noted that grafted rootstock
should only be considered for high value crops.
Propagation by Cuttings
In the final photo you see an example of Black Cedars which have been
propagated by cuttings.
