Grafting for Disease Resistance in Heirloom Tomatoes (AG-675)
This eight-page publication by Frank Louws and Cary Rivard describes grafting techniques that growers can use to unite the disease resistance and enhanced vigor of hybrid tomato cultivars with the high fruit quality of heirloom varieties. It describes the benefits of grafting and provides a step-by-step guide to grafting tomato transplants, healing and acclimating them to growing conditions and planting them in the field.

Godfrey Nalyanya has added three Spanish brochures to the titles in his Campana MIP en las Escuelas (School IPM Campaign):
· Combata las Plagas en las Escuelas (Get Tough on Pests in Schools) (AG-631-02S) tells how to use IPM in schools to prevent and solve pest problems by using safe, effective strategies.
· Como deshacerse de las Plagas en las instalaciones escolares (Get Tough on Pests in School Facilities) (AG-631-03S) tells how to use IPM to prevent and solve pest problems in school facilities from cafeterias to boiler rooms by using safe, effective strategies.
· Elimine las plagas en las areas de servicios alimenticios (Get Tough on Pests in Food Service Areas) (AG-631-05S) tells how to use IPM in school food service areas to prevent and solve pest problems by using safe, effective strategies.
