Abstract:

Vegetables shares major part of the daily dishes prepared in Indian kitchen and are rich in carbohydrate, vitamins, minerals and other phyto-nutraceuticals. But less do we know that these vegetables are heavily-laden with synthetic chemicals and pesticides. In order to gain higher yield most of the Indian farmers uses synthetic chemicals and pesticides which ultimately induced in the food chain and affects human and environment health. Though various other environment friendly methods are practiced such as genetically modified crops, but they are mostly time consuming and costly and many a times do not gets well accepted among the consumers due to misconceived ideas. In this situation it is needed that other farmers friendly techniques are to be explored and grafting can be one of them as it is quick, practical in its application and eco-friendly. It has been practiced from many years in Eastern Asia to overcome various vegetable production issues. Mostly related to disease incidences, and abiotic stress tolerance including the soil and water pollution stress. Recently growing awareness of ill effects of chemicals on human and environment health among the consumers, the market of organic products is increasing steeply around the globe. Considering various research works on grafting it can be assumed that it is one of the best method to be included in organic farming practices. The present review work highlights various research works conducted on grafting of solanaceous crops throughout the globe on aspects like biotic and abiotic stress tolerance, growth, yield and quality of crops and how these could be used to improve the present scenario of grafted vegetable cultivation in India.
