Are You Interested in Participating a Grafted Cucumber Study?

We will continue the on-farm evaluation of grafted cucumbers for early-season production in high tunnels. The same as last year, we are going to supply grafted and normal cucumber plants for free. These plants were grown in a conventional greenhouse. We will use untreated rootstock seeds, but they are not certified organic. What we want is for you to grow the same number and variety of grafted and normal cucumber plants, and keep track of the yields. We will provide a stipend for your efforts in tracking the data. If you are interested in the project, please contact Wenjing Guan at or (812) 886-0198. If you are interested in grafting cucumbers on your own, here is an extension bulletin and a video explaining the process. This project is supported by North Central Region SARE program under project number LNC17- 390.
