UW Tomato Rootstocks for Grafting
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.
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.
- 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.
- The tomato rootstock varieties will be useful for grafted tomato production tropical Central America.
