Grafting is an age-old practice of connecting a set of roots to an aerial portion of a separate plant. Together they typically exhibit enhanced productivity, disease resistance, or other trait that makes grafting a useful practice. But why does it work? How does it work? What happens at the cells in the junction where different plants collide? Dr. Charles Melnyk from the Swedish Agricultural University sheds light on this mysterious process. We cover the history, applications, and what’s happening at the interface of two very different biologies uniting as one.
