Plant breeding

We like improving and brightening plant species to suit production, garden and house environments. But we never cross the line for what Nature eventually can do on its own. We resist manipulation of genes beyond natural cross pollination of plants.
The plant breeding process is carried out by optimizing the plant material in the breeding program, ie selecting the best parent plants, controlled pollination, seed harvest, development of seedling off spring, as well as selection of individual plants with improved and desired characteristics.
We run with the people and businesses who see plant breeding as a tool and a method to, in these times, encourage out breeding and robust varieties to withstand an ensure climatic changes, organic growing methods and natures own principle of “survival of the fittest”.

Planteforædling
Som et led i optimeret produktudvikling af planter og planteprodukter har Team Growhow bred erfaring i traditionel planteforædling, dvs. af 100% GMO-fri sorter. Forædlingen foregår in situ, altså med hele planter og krydsbestøvning. Dette bevirker, at vi ikke går over stregen for hvad naturen selv kan og vil udvikle, før eller senere. Forædlingen foregår ved indsamling, opdyrkning, bestøvning, frøhøst, fremavl af frøplanter og selektion af disse efter de kriterier som kunden og markedet ønsker sig. Dette medfører robuste stærke sorter som ikke er i konflikt med naturens egne principper for “survival of the fittest” og klimatiske udfordringer.
