grafted in March or April when stock plants are dormant, a busy season for Christmas tree growers. Efforts to identify alternative grafting dates have been unsuccessful ( Hibbert-Frey et al., 2010 ). Origin of scion material within the tree crown might

Elucidating how dwarfing apple rootstocks modify scion architecture and the precise time after propagation when this first starts is essential to identify clearly those processes that are the first physiological causes of rootstock-induced scion

Similar scion and rootstock growth rates produce strong graft unions in fruit and nut trees. A SRR close to one provides a strong graft union as well as a uniform exterior surface for trunk-shaking harvesters. ‘Kerman’, which has been the standard

seedlings are of importance in reducing production costs of grafted vegetables. Methods for cucurbit grafting differ considerably among geographic regions and nurseries, and vary with rootstock and scion combinations ( Lee 1994 ; Lee and Oda, 2003 ; Lee et
