Much progress has been made in the last 30 years specific to bench grafting. This book discusses grafting techniques, namely bench grafting, for a wide range of plant species. It details grafting strategies; requirements for graft union formation; procedures to enhance formation; controlled environments and their importance; grafting systems and facilities; and conservation issues.
