Workshop: Rootstock-scion and rhizosphere signaling

In the COST Action “Vegetable grafting to improve yield and fruit quality under biotic and abiotic stress conditions” researchers originating from 12 EU countries cooperate with the aim to select better rootstocks for crops like tomato, cucumber, pepper, aubergine and melon. Exchange of knowledge and experience is an important means to realise this goal.

Organised by Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture, University of Groningen
