Forests & Bioremediation
GET’s technical team is equipped with an extended experience in reforestation programs, using symbiotic microorganism such as mycorrhizae, and collaboration with the genetic improvement departments of different universities. This has led us to an ideal selection of clones that can be used in reforestation and bioremediation programs.
For us, purification of contaminated water, and land restoration to combat the desertification caused by salinity or drought, are important objectives. To achieve these, we have carefully selected a group of plant species such as Paulownia, Poplar, Aundo Donax L. (giant cane or Spanish reed), Typha, and Nicotiana Glauca (Tree Tobacco) to be used in such programs and projects. With years of experiments, we have also identified and cloned the best plants for each type of project.
We offer the following plants, all the clones used have been developed and produced by GET and offer unique characteristics, some different from the ones available in market:
· Paulownia: P. elongata
· Paulownia: Interspecific hybrid (P. elongata x P. fortunei)
· Paulownia: Interspecific hybrid (P. fortunei x P. tomentosa)
· Populus: Chopo San Lorenzo
· Nicotiana Glauca & Arundo donax
The above-mentioned species have been selected because of their resistance to adverse conditions, their wood quality, and their great growth capacity (fast-growing).
We offer a selection of rootstocks and specific varieties produced by in vitro multiplication using our own method which guarantees the plant’s genetic stability and sanitary quality.
In some species which cannot be multiplied by cutting, grafting can be used as an option for multiplication. In grafting, the upper part (scion) of one plant grows on the root system (rootstock) of another plant.
The Rootstock is often the underground part of the plant and its selection is just as important as variety (scion) selection. The rootstock and scion are usually from the same or closely related species. Rootstocks are selected based on important traits such as their drought tolerance, their resistance to nematodes and fungi, and/ or their productivity.
We offer the following rootstocks, all developed and produced by GET and offer unique characteristics, some different from the ones available in market:
· Marianna GF 8-1
· Citrus macrophylla (clone selection)
· Carob: Duraió
· Carob: Royal
· Carob: Matalafera
All our rootstocks are produced in GET laboratory by using our own clones and out technique of in vitro micropropagation to guarantees their genetic stability and sanitary quality.
Although grafting is the traditional multiplication method used in nurseries, the direct cutting of the variety is the simplest way used for ages. Multiplication through cutting or self-propagation is only possible in some species such as pomegranate, vine, or olive trees. For some species such as pears or different kind of prunus, multiplication via cutting has not been an option so far.
In vitro micropropagation offers the opportunity of multiplying both kind of varieties mentioned above. In addition, in vitro multiplication rejuvenates the tissues and allows the direct rooting of species such as forest plants or fruit trees, therefore grafting will not be the only multiplication method available.
GET’s R&D department has dedicated significant time and effort to apply microcutting technique as an in vitro micropropagation method. So far, our team has applied this technic to different species of interest in agriculture and forestry.
We offer the following varieties, all developed and produced by GET and offer unique characteristics, some different from the ones available in market:
· Olive: Arbequina
· Olive: Piqual
· Pear: Pyrus communis L, cv Williams
· Carob: Sdc
· Carob: Turís
The original clonal selection of different species is based on their agronomic traits and productivity. After initial selection, the clones are analyzed for different pathogens such as viruses and/ or bacteria. In next step, the clones are sanitized if necessary and then in vitro cloning and micropropagation is performed.
For years, our R&D department has done research and conducted experiments towards the selection and sanitation of the best clones and paternal material and the development of new varieties and rootstocks. GET’s in vitro micropropagation protocols guarantees the genetic homogeneity and health of the micropropagated plants.

Setting Up Tissue Culture Lab
We would help you set up your own tissue culture laboratory and teach you GET’s in vitro micropropagation technique so you can achieve the most and best at the lowest cost. Our tissue culture technique has the following advantages:
· Shorter production, growth, and harvest cycle.
· More tolerance to difficult climate situation (drought, salinity, and such).
· Higher resistance to nematodes
· Higher yield and quality.
· Homogenous plants and pathogen-free and healthy products
· Lower costs and higher profitablity.
· More sustainability.
We assist you all through the way from formulating the idea up to realizing it:
· Diagnostic services to evaluate your current performance, find the problems and troubleshoot.
· Analyzing, formulating, and developing ideas.
· Establishing strategic business plan for the R&D&I project.
· Searching and processing of national and international funding and aid.
· Searching for best biotechnological partners.
· Management of contracts with different universities.
