transferred to other cultivars with lower efficiency but with agriculturally high commercial value. One way to avoid or reduce losses in production caused by low NUE in high-yielding genotypes would be to graft them onto rootstocks capable of improving NUE of

. Edelstein et al. (2005) showed that melon plants grafted on Cucurbita (TZ-148) rootstocks accumulated less boron in the vegetative shoot than nongrafted melons exposed to similar boron concentrations in the irrigation water. This was attributed to the

Recently, grafting has gained increased attention for U.S. tomato production systems ( King et al., 2008 ; Kubota et al., 2008 ). Field trials in the southeastern U.S. showed that resistant rootstocks can be used to manage site-specific soilborne

Throughout the 20th century, watermelon ( C. lanatus Thunb.) grafting was adopted in many areas of the world to manage soilborne diseases, primarily fusarium wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum Schlecht. ( Davis et al., 2008 ; King et al., 2008
