After years of planning, and many months of construction, work wrapped up in early 2013 on our new micro-propagation facility located next to our main office in Yuba City. The lab and grow room facility is actually within our former tree grading warehouse. What an incredible transformation – from an old warehouse into a world-class lab facility many have likened to a “plant factory.”
Micro-prapagation by plant tissue culture has been a plant cloning method used for decades around the globe for various plant species and crops. Plant cloning is not new to AY Nursery Inc – we have a long history of propagating rootstocks by hard-wood cuttings and variety cloning by budding and grafting which is commonplace. But, using techniques to produce clones of plants by tissue culture under sterile conditions, in vitro, on a nutrient culture medium brings new advances to AY Nursery Inc production capabilities.
Many plant varieties can simply not be efficiently cloned by any method other than tissue culture. Recent University of California seedling selections of paradox hybrid walnut rootstocks and UCB-1 hybrid pistachio rootstock can only be cloned using tissue culture techniques. Many popular peach/almond hybrid rootstocks for almonds such as Bright’s Hybrid 5 and Hansen 536 are more efficiently propagated by plant tissue culture. And, several selections of both the Gisela and Krymsk series of cherry rootstock are now propagated by tissue culture. Our state-of-the-art lab production facility is now fully-staffed and in high production mode working to keep up with demand of some of our more sought-after rootstocks.
