This is what BillBerry Farms is bring to the cannabis community. (http://billberryfarmstissueculture.com/ ) The practice of plant tissue culture has changed the way some nurserymen approach plant propagation. In the recent past, the applicability of this technology to the propagation of trees and shrubs has been documented. Some fir…ms have established tissue culture facilities and commercial scale operations are presently in operation for the mass propagation of apples, crabapples, rhododendrons, and a few other selected woody species. The intent of this research update is to briefly examine “what is being done” and to explore “what can be done” with regard to the tissue culture of ornamental plants. Such a consideration necessarily includes an overview of tissue culture as a propagation tool. The major impact of plant tissue culture will not be felt in the area of micropropagation, however, but in the area of controlled manipulations of plants at the cellular level in ways which have not been possible prior to the introduction of tissue culture techniques.
In introducing this research update, it was mentioned that the major impact of tissue culture technology would not be in the area of micropropagation, but rather in the area of controlled manipulations of plant germplasm at the cellular level. The ability to unorganize, rearrange, and reorganize the constituents of higher plants has been demonstrated with a few model systems to date, but such basic research is already being conducted on ornamental trees and shrubs with the intent of obtaining new and better landscape plants.
Perhaps the most heavily researched area of tissue culture today is the concept of selecting disease, insect, or stress resistant plants through tissue culture. Just as significant gains in the adaptability of many species have been obtained by selecting and propagating superior individuals, so the search for these superior individuals can be tremendously accelerated using in vitro systems. Such systems can attempt to exploit the natural variability known to occur in plants or variability can be induced by chemical or physical agents known to cause mutations
