Growth and development of tissue cultured date palms
Growth and development of tissue cultured date palm plants go under several steps. We summarize it as follows:
I. We import the highest quality of date palm trees from around the world for the sole purpose of propagation using state of art tissue culturing technology .
II. The active heart tissues are taken from the selected plant and under the highest hygienic conditions are then planted in a proper media in our labs .
III. From the developing embryo to a green plant takes place in our labs equipped with a proper life support system controlled by temperature, humidity and light & closely monitored.
VI. The newly developed plant is then taken to the glass houses where it is gradually hardened and accustomed to the normal environment in which it will be planted in. This process takes almost 3 months.
The nursery period takes 3 to 6 months time in which the plant is developed and accustomed to the real life temperature and conditions and is closely monitored by our trained specialist and engineers in our Bidyah site. After this period the plants are ready to be planted anywhere.
