NL: Vitro Plus innovates in cultivation system for ferns

Vitro Plus has developed a whole new cultivation system for ferns, where plants are cultivated into semi hardened off seedlings in a fully monitored efficient way.

This new system has been derived from Vitro Plus 30 year old tissue culture system, which needed new modified growing conditions.

A separate greenhouse has been equipped into a multi-layered state of art cultivating area one can imagine.

By using special trollies fitted with led plates, which were developed in cooperation with REVEB, the cultivation capacity per m3 is 20-30 times higher than in traditional greenhouses. The latest cooling and air conditioning systems will guarantee a verifiable climate. Next to the cultivation hall a fully automatic production area has been equipped to produce plants.

In addition a tissue culture laboratory has been housed as well where Vitro Research does a detailed study of new species, protocols and new innovative processes. This great expansion has prepared Vitro Plus for the future and its constant pursuit to lead the way in the fern world.
