Vegetable grafting is a technology whose main objective is to increase yield under biotic and abiotic stresses such as sub and supra-optimal temperature, salinity, drought, Pest damage, diseases etc. Commercial vegetable grafting has been started since few decades and the area under vegetable grafting is progressively increasing. Vegetable grafting is having potential to expand area under cultivation of vegetables under non-traditional conditions and unstable agro-eco-systems and there it has a scope to increase production per unit land available. Vegetable grafting is one of the cheapest and alternative tool to long and slow breeding procedures in development of resistant varieties.
