Grafting Advantages

There are many advantages with Grafting for both the grower and the consumer.


  • Grafting enables a vigorous root-stock that provides the plant with greater strength than a non-grafted plant.
  • The rootstocks provide resistance to soil-borne diseases and enable soil reuse even without disinfection or with reduced disinfection.
  • This additional vigor of the rootstocks allows a significant increase of crop in relation to non-grafted plants.
  • The ability to use the same plot multiple times saves the grower rotation growing costs between plots and renewed preparation of new plots.
  • By using grafted seedlings the plant density can be lowered (compared to non-grafted) even though yield per acre will be higher.
  • Rootstocks permit the production of Heirloom varieties previously susceptible to disease and enable the varieties to cope with the conditions.
  • Growing vegetables in greenhouse structures (watermelon, tomato, eggplant, pepper) allows extension of the harvest season with better quality.
  • It is a “green” solution suitable for organic farming.
  • Using grafted plants allows the use of soil where crop protection products cannot be used due to Buffer Zone regulations.
