Promising rootstocks for increasing of tomato yield and quality in greenhouses

UDC 635.01

The article describes a new direction in the cultivation of vegetable and melon crops – vegetative grafting. It is shown that when using this method on tomato, for each variety, lines are allocated that provide the highest indicators of increasing commodity yield, average fruit weight, several components of chemical composition, as well as complex resistance to tobacco mosaic virus, brown spotting and Fusarium wilting.

Keywords: tomato, variety, rootstock, disease resistance, yield, fruit weight, chemical composition.
