EFFECTS OF GRAFTED SEEDLING USE ON YIELD, GROWTH AND QUALITY PARAMETERS OF TOMATO GROWING IN GREENHOUSE

G. Yarsi
In this study, tomato seedling ‘Cobra’ was used as scion and ‘Beaufort’ as rootstock. Grafted and non-grafted plants were grown in the glasshouse in Silifke-Mersin, Turkey. The grafted plants had 24.6% more yield than non-grafted plants and bigger fruits, higher plants and larger stem diameters. But citric acid, pH, soluble solids content, number of carpels, and firmness of fruits were not significantly affected by grafting.
