Our team of experienced cultivators is led by Group Technical & Cultivation Director, Andrew Fuller. The focus of their research and development is on breeding programmes that identify plant varieties with high levels of active molecules.
Utilising our state of the art glasshouse our cultivators are able to optimise the growing conditions in order to maximise the yields of selected molecules. Using the latest LED light technology with variable light spectrum we are able to enhance plant growth, and with the use of blackout curtains we are able to manipulate daylength to replicate the natural habitat of different plant species.
Once we have identified active molecules of interest, we utilise the latest breeding techniques to develop plant varieties that we can scale up for high density production in our state-of-the-art glasshouse. At our fully integrated facility we are able to produce active molecules with full seed to sale traceability for nutraceutical, personal care and pharmaceutical application.
Using tissue culture we are building an extensive genetic library of clean, disease and pest-free plant clones, to ensure the consistency, uniformity and reliability of our proprietary genetics.
