Gospodarstwo Ogrodnicze Tadeusz Kusibab
In 1981 we started our activity in the field of in vitro plant propagation. Since 1984 we have been propagating various varieties of blueberries, and since 1986 we have been micro-propagating of the ericaceae (heather family), such as: rhododendrons, azaleas, kalmias. Currently we propagate: blue honeysuckles (haskaps), large-fruited varieties of blackberries, raspberries, tayberries and saskatoons and many others. We offer only laboratory material in plastic vessels.
The in vitro propagation - technology of contemporary times and the future.
The production of our plants begins in special, controlled conditions – in the
in vitro cultures laboratory (i.e. on the glass). The in vitro process consists in accelerating the growth of plants in a controlled way. By implementing thoroughly selected growth regulators we appropriately stimulate plants
to develop (e.g. their roots or side buds). Young plants growing in sterile conditions have optimal growth and development conditions. Ample lighting conditions, properly selected composition of the media, specific temperature and humidity make that it is possible to considerably accelerate the propagation process.
At the end of 2018, a new laboratory was opened at the Krakow head office
of PLANTIN. Its surface area equals 625 m2 and it has 15 production stands equipped with new technology facilitating the production of plants. In our collection, we possess approximately 500 taxa of plants ready at any time
to begin production anew. Every year we introduce about dozens new taxa
and prepare them to a potential commercial use.
For years we have been producing the highest quality plants, which is proved by the certificates of GLOBAL G.A.P.® (Good Agricultural Practice). GLOBAL G.A.P.® is an independent, voluntary, global certification system consisting of mutual mechanisms of good agricultural and production practices. It especially focuses on the issues of proper use of plant protection agents, fertilisers, cultivation techniqes, irrigation, waste disposal and the last but not least providing a healthy and safe workplace for our employees and ensuring environmental sustainability and protection.
Our GLOBAL G.A.P.® assigned registration number is: TUV-PL494.
