About Agristarts

We are a biological technology company who produce and sell tissue culture liners on a wholesale level. Tissue-culture is the duplication of the original plant we put into production, in doing so we have an exact replica of the "mother" plant. We clone plants!

Our lab technicians use scalpels, microscopes and petri dishes, to produce thousands of little plants from a single, tiny growing tip cut from a superior "mother" plant. Our plants are grown on a gelled nutrient rich medium with growth regulators. They are grown in vessels, on shelves, in a sterile laboratory which is temperature and light controlled. Each plant is disease free and can be virus indexed upon request.

When the plants are large enough to harvest, or to be planted in soil, to allow them to root and grow to 3-5" in height, then they are sold as liners in 72 cell-packs. Using tissue culture means a sample of an endangered plant can be used to grow thousands more. If researchers develop a hybrid with curative properties, Agri-Starts can mass-produce it.
