We want to help growers get the best out of our varieties: to maximize their yield and achieve the highest quality. One important technique used is called ‘grafting’: a shoot from one plant cultivar is grafted onto the root system, or ‘rootstock’, of another. The result is a crop that has the best of both worlds.
