Grech Farms

Great Roots

Minituber production:This is the canopy above the light-proof box, taken at the same time as the previous photo. The whole operation is conduction in greenhouses in a sterile environment. The plants grow only to about 40cm tall and are continually monitored with sensors that control warm and light. The process of growing minitubers happens every year as seed is required to be generated from the original tissue held in a secure tissue bank.
