Commercial application of tissue culture to horticultural crops in the United States


, : Commercial application of tissue culture to horticultural crops in the United States. Journal of the Korean Society for Horticultural Science 37(3): 486-490

Commercial micropropagation started in the U.S. with orchids about 1965. The techniques used were soon adapted to many other crops, with important commercial production first occurring with foliage plants. Application to woody plants took longer, but now very significant quantities of fruit, ornamental and forest species are produced. In addition, large quantities of other important crops are being produced, e.g. potatoes, and steady expansion is occurring in the production of herbaceous perennial plants. As the advantages of micropropagated plants become evident, possibilities develop for additional species to be propagated using this technology. The current level of output, 120 million plants per year, will almost certainly continue to grow in the next decade.
