Potatoes are readily propagated using the SmartClone™ system, yielding more robust plantlets than through conventional tissue culture. These potato plantlets in SmartClone™ pods can be transferred directly to soil (but require careful management). The SmartClone™ plantlet pods are readily transferred to mini-tuber production pots and grow rapidly; the pod system is amenable to automated nursery transfer. With pre-hardening plantlets have a head-start and can yield triple the normal number of minitubers, without size reduction.

SmartClone™ - Tougher plantlets faster

SmartClone™ changes the tissue culture paradigm. NuPlant’s key technology allows conditions to be customized for each growth phase for more robust plantlets, grading for uniformity, robotic handling for laboratory efficiency, easy soil transfer, and a head start for accelerated nursery growth.
