Grafting is used for an array of vegetables, including tomatoes, cucurbits, and peppers. Grafting can improve agronomic characteristics, abiotic stress resistance, fruit quality, and yield compared with nongrafted plants ( Devi et al., 2020

response factor ( ERF ) genes have been characterized in numerous plants in which they are involved in responses to biotic and abiotic stress, including hypoxia stress, cold stress, and heat stress ( Licausi et al., 2013 ; Min et al., 2012 ; Müller and

one primary non-stomatal factor to inhibit photosynthesis in perennial ryegrass. A similar relationship between P n and Rubisco activity in response to abiotic stress has been reported for boron deficiency and boron excess in pummelo [ Citrus grandis

relatively slow rate of shoot system development by ‘Ramsey’ ( Fig. 4 ). The rate of shoot system development observed in this study is likely itself a trait relevant to drought tolerance, as slow growth has long been noted to be a hallmark of abiotic stress

Profitable heirloom tomato production is a major challenge in the southeast as a result of weathered soil structure, abiotic stress, and diseases caused by foliar and soilborne plant pathogens. Diseases caused by pathogens such as Fusarium

Abiotic stresses, such as nutrient disorder and soil acidification, are dominant soil factors that affect plant performance. It is well known that B is an essential micronutrient for vascular plants ( Marschner, 1995 ), and it has an important role
