Abstract: Grafting can be defined as the vegetative and asexual method of plant propagation and done by combining two separate plants i.e. upper part contain shoot system of high yielding commercial cultivar called as ‘scion’ and lower part known as ‘rootstock’ with desired root system characteristics into a single independent plant possessing interested trait. Grafting used for a long time ago to increase uniformity, vigour and resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses of vegetatively propagated plants. Presently, grafting becomes popular technology among the vegetable growers and scientist to develop resistance or improve tolerance against the broad spectrum of biotic and environmental stresses in the various vegetable crops specifically solanaceous and cucurbitaceous crops. Commercial vegetable grafting techniques originated in Japan and Korea and it is currently being globally practiced using local scion cultivars and introduced rootstocks
