Experiments were performed to determine the effect of different soil temperatures (15, 20 or 25 degrees C) on the growth and yield of capsicum Tosa Green B grafted on rootstocks LS 279 or Tosa Green B. On both rootstocks growth was superior and yield highest at 25 degrees. Plants grafted on Tosa Green B rootstocks showed superior growth and yield compared with those on LS 279.
