Banana clonal variety ‘kepok’ are nursed at the green house during acclimatization stage for 4 months duration before field planting.
Banana (Musa spp.) tissue culture approach facilitates mass production of plantlets/ time. Using tissue culture, the possibility to develop healthy planting material is the key to good crop stand in the field.
Ginger or scientifically known as Zingiber officinale Rosc. is a perennial plant with thick tuberous pungent aromatic roots or rhizomes. It has been cultivated for thousands of years for use as a spice and for herbal medicine purposes.
Fertigation technology (soilless) is the best cultivation practice, where it can prevent soil-borne diseases that could affect the growth of ginger rhizome as well as to increase the production yield of ginger.
Ginger clonal variety ‘Bentong’ are nursed in planting trays at the green house during acclimatization stage for 5 months before planting.
Pineapple variety MD2 is a pineapple hybrid originally produced by Pineapple Research Industry in Hawaii and currently being the highest demanded variety in the international market.
It is known to be having sweet aroma, golden blemish free flesh, high sugar content (brix 15 – 18%), ripen evenly and longer shelf life compared to other pineapple variety.
Pineapple clonal variety ‘MD2’ are nursed in planting trays at the green house during acclimatization stage for 3 months before field planting. One tray can accommodate 50 pineapple plantlets.
Sago palm or scientifically known as Metroxylon sagu is one of the most potential carbohydrate-producing crops.
Sago tissue culture is core research of CRAUN with the main focus is to mass propagate the production of high yielding sago clonal planting materials to support the sago smallholders and sago industry as a whole.
Sago clonal (Metroxylon sagu) are nursed in polybag in the green house during acclimatization stage for 6 months before field planting.
