Title:
HOW TISSUE CULTURE CAN BE THE ANSWER

Author:
Robert T. Schilpzand

pp: 523-526

Abstract:
Since 1985 I have been the tissue-culture plant grower at A. McGill & Son Nursery in Fairview, Oregon. In the last few years I have seen quite an increase of interest in tissue-culture plants. Our only supplier of tissue-culture material is Microplant Nurseries which is a joint venture of A. McGill and Son and Knollview Nurseries. After a shaky start we have come a long way. Currently A. McGill and Son grow by tissue culture:
            15 red maple cultivars
            15 crab apple cultivars
            2 ornamental cherry cultivars
            4 birch cultivars
            2 linden cultivars
            1 sugar maple cultivar
            1 amelanchier cultivar

We have been very successful in producing a field-ready plant for our growing fields and also for outside sales. Motivated by our motto of "Quality from Vigilance" we have worked to ensure a live tree in every hole, the result has been producing material we can be proud of.
