Ginosar Agro operates a state-of-the-art tissue culture lab, which was established in 1984. The lab is quality-oriented with strict quality control and has the capacity of producing a total of 5 million plants a year. Being the heart of Ginosar Agro's plant manufacturing, the lab is also the basis for continuous innovative Research and Development of new techniques for improving quality, minimizing mutations and improving cost-benefit outcomes.
Plant tissue culture micropropagation is a technique used to multiply one whole plant from one of its cells under sterile conditions on a nutrient culture medium of known composition.
Plant tissue culture relies on the fact that many plant cells have the ability to regenerate a whole plant. In the banana case, its callus cells are used to generate a new plant on culture media given the required nutrients and plant hormones.
