In this publicity photo provided by courtesy Ball Horticultural Co., side-by-side tests run by Ball Horticultural Co. show at least 50 percent higher yields from grafted tomato transplants, left, over non-grafted varieties, right, as seen here at Log House Plants Nursery, in Cottage Grove, O.R. That total varies somewhat depending upon garden and gardener but means more fruit or larger fruit. Grafted vegetables are expected to be a big hit in seed catalogs and retail stores next season.
