UW Tomato Rootstocks for Grafting
WARF: P190352US01

Inventors: James Nienhuis

The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is seeking commercial partners interested in tomato rootstock combining geminivirus and other resistance from several germplasm sources.
The Invention
UW-Madison researchers have developed new tomato rootstock crosses based on cultivators and germplasm accessories obtained from USDA germplasm bank to identify rootstock populations. This new tomato rootstock will be developed as inbred lines and is related to an earlier geminivirus resistance project.
Applications
  • This tomato rootstock will combine resistance from several germplasm sources.
  • Tomato rootstock cultivators will find this useful for open-pollination or segregating populations.
  • Will be useful for grafted tomato production tropical Central America.
Key Benefits
  • The tomato rootstock varieties will be useful for grafted tomato production tropical Central America.
