Development of a universal Date Palm Tissue Culture Protocol for global date palm agro-industries and large farmers
Rana Agro-Industry Corporation's Plant Biotechnology Complex has succeeded in developing a universal date palm tissue culture protocol, allowing it to mass produce virtually any date palm variety using the direct somatic embryogenesis technique, without compromising the DNA fidelity of the mass produced palms to the original mother palms used. This significant development has allowed the company to engage in exclusive agency agreements with various countries to produce their local varieties on a mass scale. The company is now ready to engage in exclusive micropropagation contracts with interested parties.
