Several hand held and bench top grafting machines have been developed but few are used extensively.

When the scion and rootstock are the same size, these machines make tightly fitting grafts.

Automated grafting robots have also been developed. These are primarily used for grafting vegetable seedlings.

Vegetables are grafted with pathogen or nematode resistant rootstocks.
