Tissue culture mass production techniques for high quality crops
TISSUE CULTURE: MASS PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES FOR HIGH QUALITY CROPS

  • During the past 10 years, KISR has developed tissue culture technologies on mass production of elite date palm cultivars, superior quality of seed potatoes, medicinal and native plants.

  • Current production is 25,000 to 30,000 date palm plantlets.

  • KISR supply the local marker with tissue cultured date palm

  • KISR on process to establish tissue culture company .


Bio plus a novel soil amendment for desert
BIO-PLUS: A NOVEL SOIL AMENDMENT FOR DESERT CROPS

  • A novel bio-product “BIO-PLUS” for improving desert soil fertility was successfully developed by the Biotechnology Department in KISR.


Soil bioremediation a cost effective green technology for soil decontamination
SOIL BIOREMEDIATION: A Cost Effective Green Technology for Soil Decontamination:

  • Remediation and rehabilitation of oil contaminated desert soil and the oil lakes resulted in the development of cost effective bioremediation and physical chemical technologies for treatment of oil contaminated soils and oil sludge. These technologies were field demonstrated successfully at a large scale under Kuwait conditions


  • The potential use of the bioremediated soil for Soil Decontamination:

  • landscape purpose was demonstrated by the

  • establishment of a public park in Al-Ahmadi,

  • Kuwait. The composts can replace part of or all synthetic

  • fertilizers used in the operation.


Thank You Soil Decontamination:
