For many a crop species vegetative propagation is still very difficult. Although genetic variation is important, clonal plant production has a lot of advantages compared to heterogeneous seedlings. The central motivation of our team is to provide innovative solutions to clone superior herbaceous and principally woody plants for food, feed, fuel, fiber, ornamental and medicinal use. This implies the exploitation of all current botanical, physiological and biotechnological scientific literature. A good scientific network and own research results provide a continuous influx of new research tools. We cooperate worldwide with companies and research groups that are familiar with local plant species and culture conditions to come to applicable long term solutions.
