to increase BCA survival under adverse environmental conditions ( Wraight et al., 2001 ). Some carriers include fine clay, peat, vermiculite, alginate, wheat, bran, talc, diatomaceous earth, and pasteurized soil ( Boyetchko et al., 1998 ). We propose

Growing vegetable plants for open-field production requires a plant that can withstand environmental challenges such as heavy rains, wind, and stressful temperatures. Obviously, the strength of the graft union is very important to the survival of

( Wilson, 1970 ). Environmental conditions such as precipitation and initial soil moisture have been shown to be the key components for transplant survival and storage root set in sweetpotato ( Gajanayake et al., 2013 ; Thompson et al., 2017 ). Soil
