the root system result in significant yield losses. Grafting is a viable solution for mitigating damage caused by root-knot nematodes in coffee orchards. Cleft grafts are created with scions of arabica coffee seedlings at the hypocotyledon stage and a

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

Tomato ( Solanum lycopersicum ) grafting has been widely used because of its major benefits in conferring plant resistance to soilborne pathogens, alleviating the deleterious effects of abiotic stresses, and enhancing water and nutrient use

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

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

, soil amendments are expensive ( Julian et al., 2012 ) and may not be ecologically sound. The high costs associated with soil amendments decrease the profitability and sustainability of the blueberry industry. Grafting is a well-established horticultural

Grafting is currently practiced worldwide on many high-value cucurbitaceous and solanaceous crops such as watermelon [ Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai], melon ( Cucumis melo L.), cucumber ( Cucumis sativus L.), tomato ( Solanum
