This research will focus on building a system which will test the
durability of the root stock and the optimal stock-scion combination, by using
morphological - metabolic – molecular –
and physiological tests on grafted crops and adapting them to arid regions.
This is a long term project, as a part of which continuous as well as
non-continuous experiments will be conducted on the root zones of durable
stocks, with supplementation of biological and chemical growth enhancers.
