Alternatives to Methyl Bromide: This project focuses on determining whether grafting tomatoes and peppers to disease resistant rootstocks can provide a competitive alternative to preplant methyl bromide fumigation. This work is conducted in the framework of the challenges and needs of field-grown commercial vegetable production in Southeastern US conditions. The goal is to determine the rootstock/ scion combinations which are superior under these conditions, and provide high quality vegetable products.
