Rootstock scion somatogenetic interactions in perennial composite plants

  title={Rootstock scion somatogenetic interactions in perennial composite plants},
  author={Tyson Koepke and Amit Dhingra},
  journal={Plant Cell Reports},
The ancient plant production practice of grafting which instantly imparts new physiological properties to the desirable scion still remains shrouded in mystery. Yet, grafting remains a widely used technique in the production of several horticultural species. In a composite grafted plant, rootstocks control many aspects of scion growth and physiology including yield and quality attributes as well as biotic and abiotic stress tolerance. Broadly, physical, physiological, biochemical and molecular… CONTINUE READING
