Vegetable grafting has become an increasingly important tool in commercial crop production. Vegetable growers and related communities are interested in maximizing benefits of grafted plants. Our field trial, kindly supported by Dan Avila & Sons, is testing the effects of plant population and various grafted combinations on watermelon yield and fruit quality to find a balance between cost (number of grafted plants per acre) and fruit yield and quality. Our guest speakers will present on the development of vegetable grafting and their experience with grafted plants. Attendees will get hands-on experience combining the two plants into one with grafting a watermelon plant. Light refreshments will be served throughout the field day.
