Planting tissue culture
The process of plant tissue culture begins with the selection of native plants with healthy, productive, and characteristic characteristics that are disease-free, and then parts of the tissues of these plants are removed, disinfected and then transplanted into sterile agricultural media. And by planting these tissues in a specific nutrient medium, we can partially control in further development and to encourage multiplication or rooting.
These young plants are grown under sterile conditions in equipped growth rooms, which are optimally regulated in terms of quality and intensity of lighting, temperature and air purity. And these conditions of growth are very favorable so that the multiplication process can be repeated every five to eight weeks.
Then the plants are transferred to the company’s greenhouses. These advanced greenhouses controlled by temperature, humidity, and lighting enable us to produce 365 days a year.
The heating system provides continued production in the winter months and production continues using the cooling system in the summer.
The assets of the selected plants are kept in sterile laboratory conditions in the gene bank within the company’s laboratories and are constantly renewed. This is a great advantage for our customers, who specifically need to obtain similar strains in the genetic makeup of native plants and free of diseases
