Welcome to our Resources page for the Fundamentals of Tomato Grafting webinar, a list of materials to help provide you with the knowledge needed for small-scale production of grafted tomato plants.
Follow the detailed instructions in this Tech Sheet to reap all the benefits of side-grafting: overcome disease and production-related issues, improve overall crop health, reduce or eliminate pesticide use, lengthen harvest duration, and significantly increase net income. The entire process from sowing of rootstock and scion varieties to final transplanting of grafted plants into greenhouse soil or soilless medium normally takes 6-8 weeks. The major advantage of side grafting is that this method is more forgiving of differing stem diameters than top grafting...
Follow the detailed instructions in this Tech Sheet to graft desirable fruiting tomato varieties to vigorous, disease-resistant tomato rootstocks as a cost-effective method for overcoming disease and production-related issues; improving overall crop health; reducing or eliminating the need for pesticide use; lengthening harvest duration; and significantly increasing net income. The entire process from sowing of rootstock and scion varieties to final transplanting of grafted plants into greenhouse soil or soilless media normally takes 6-8 weeks.
Follow the detailed instructions in this Tech Sheet as guidelines for using your Top-Grafting Starter Kit (#7312).
Johnny's Tomato Trialing Technician Daniel Yoder provides a top-grafting demo as a component of our Fundamentals of Tomato Grafting webinar. Daniel demonstrates both splice grafting and cleft grafting, with diagrams and recommendations for protocol and materials. Watch and learn by practicing with your own setup.
Join Johnny's Tomato Trialing Technician Daniel Yoder and Northeast Sales Rep alumna Julie Fine in an introduction to the fundamentals of top-grafting tomato plants.
