Technology and Opportunity….
Clean and vigorous plants give a head start
We are keen to make long-term success stories and as a result we conduct trials both on our facilities and in other growers’ nurseries.
Many of our plants are initiated using micro propagation with different laboratories.
Increasingly we are using the highly skilled and labour intensive methods of meristem culture and virus indexing to ensure that plants are clean from known threats and as a result have increased vigour.
A number of our plants have undergone this process and are now maintained as ‘elite’ material. NWP is therefore a technological leader in the area of introducing new varieties with such a healthy start. This quality material means we can meet international plant health requirements when it comes to exporting and fulfilling growers changing needs.
