Cover for Grafting as a tool for tolerance of abiotic stress.

The use of grafted vegetable plants can minimize problems associated with successive cropping and abiotic stress, and their enhanced vigour and root growth can provide yield benefits independently of mechanisms to tolerate abiotic stress conditions. Therefore, the application of grafting in crops...
