What is Tissue Culture ?

Rajat BIOTECH, Tissue culture is a process that involves exposing plant tissue to a specific regimen of nutrients, hormones, and light under sterile, in vitro conditions to produce many new plants, each a clone of the original mother plant, over a very short period of time. Rajat Biotech's tissue culture plants are characterised by disease free growth, a more fibrous, healthier root system, a bushier branching habit, and a higher survival rate.

There are three main steps to the tissue culture process:

STAGE I is the initiation phase. It concerns the establishment of plant tissue in vitro by sterilising the material and initiating it into culture.

STAGE II is the multiplication phase. At this stage, the in vitro plant material is re-divided and placed in a medium with plant growth regulators that induce the proliferation of multiple shoots. This process is repeated many times until the number of plants desired is reached.

Stage III is the root formation phase. It involves the introduction of hormones to induce rooting and the formation of complete plantlets.

What is Apple Rootstock?

If you want to grow a successful apple tree, you can't start with seeds alone; you will need to get a small tree. It is important to learn about and choose a proper apple rootstock when choosing a starter tree.

Identification An apple rootstock is the root and associated buds of an apple tree, and it is an essential element to consider when purchasing a young apple tree.

Types An apple rootstock is the root and associated buds of an apple tree, and it is an essential element to consider when purchasing a young apple tree.

Considerations When choosing a rootstock, consider the quality of your soil, climate and your time frame.

Potential Large-size rootstocks will be harder than dwarf varieties, but they will take much longer to produce fruit.
