In vitro propagated material of woody trees, in contrast to seedlings, maintains selected qualities (stem form, forking, vein) in the plants.
These plants are especially interesting to forestry:
- less plants are needed (as usual) per hectare
- less costly to care for young plants
- higher profit through high-quality wood can be expected
- a high number of clones guarantees the diversity of genes
When placing your orders, please consider that in vitro production requires a certain preliminary lead time: We need to have your order until 31.08. (e.g. 2017) of one year for the delivery of hardened plants in Mai/June of the subsequent year (2018 or Wild Cherries 2019). Container plants you receive from October (2018) or Wild Cherries from October (2020).
Parts of the in vitro-material are being tested in certification trials at the moment. Our German ministry for agriculture gave the allowance to propagate them at the same time.
