ISHS Acta Horticulturae 748: II International Symposium on Acclimatization and Establishment of Micropropagated Plants

LARGE SCALE COMMERCIAL MICROPROPAGATION IN MEXICO. THE EXPERIENCE OF AGROMOD, S.A. DE C.V.

Abstract:
Large scale commercial micropropagation in Mexico is now starting as a new emerging industry in the state of Chiapas. One of the main challenges to overcome within this industry is the production cost per unit where the ex-agar plant quality is one of the key points for success during acclimatization. High conversion rate and speed of adaptation is needed in the greenhouse or weaning facility in order to keep a dynamic flow of plant material and an optimal utilization of the whole system to give the maximum productivity for an installed production capacity. Here, we present an overview of the work done at Agromod laboratory and the work done to produce plant material which travels long distances inside Mexico and also overseas to be adapted or acclimatized either in glasshouse or shaded house.
