Potatoes and tomatoes can be cut from the same plant, know by which technique this success was achieved
of agriculture Area New changes are coming in every day. agricultural development and farmers Of welfare For this the agricultural scientists of the country are discovering new things every day, discovering new techniques of farming. Grafting is one such modern technology. Although it has been used for many years. But earlier this technique was used only in trees. Now this technique is also being used in delicate plants and vegetables. Not only this, with the help of this technology, scientific agriculture products have been able to develop. In this technique, both potato and tomato are grown from the same plant.
It is one such farming technique which will benefit small farmers and gardeners. In fact, scientists of Indian Vegetable Research Center Varanasi have succeeded in growing vegetables for the first time in the country using grafting technique. With this technique a plant has been developed in which potato and tomato, brinjal and chilli can be produced simultaneously. Its names are Pomato and Bremato. With this technique, two types of vegetables can be grown from the same plant in a small space or in a pot.
Research is underway to develop other vegetables.
Agricultural scientist Sudarshan Kumar Maurya says that tomato and potato can be grown in the same plant with grafting technique. Its name is Pomato. Apart from this, the scientists of the Vegetable Research Center have prepared such plants which will not spoil even in excess water. Then they can give high yields in different climatic conditions in different parts of the country. Under this, scientists have developed such a variety of tomato that can grow in less water or more water or both conditions.
Tomato and Potato Grafting
To grow tomatoes and potatoes together, potato plants are grafted six inches above the ground. To make a graft, both the plant and the stem should be of the same length. After 20 days of grafting, both the plants are combined and transplanted in the field. Tomatoes can be harvested only two weeks after planting. Then when the tomato plant dries up, you can dig the potatoes. Cuttings of eggplant and tomato are made in the same way.
