Laboratory of in vitro propagation

For more than twenty years, this laboratory has been carrying out experiments on in vitro propagation of fruit (Actinidia, Chestnut, Apple, Olive, Pear, Peach, Grapevine) and ornamental species (Cycas revoluta). Plant propagation is ensured by appropriate in vitro cultivation techniques: axillary bud multiplication, organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis.
