Abstract

As in many plants, the water need of the plant cannot be met with the rainfall and irrigation of the plant to the root area causes significant increases in the yield in the cultivation of melon. There are many studies aiming to determine the amount of reduction that can be applied in irrigation water without causing any significant decrease in the quality and yield. However, the number of studies, if there is, in which a variety of melon is grafted on another kind of melon is extremely limited. In this article which is on irrigation, a grafted melon plant is discussed.
