JOil’s 1 million tissue-cultured jatropha plants. More on JOil at JatrophaWorld 2010.

September 13, 2010

In Singapore, JOil announced a contract with Indian plant biotech company KF Bioplants in which KFB will produce and deliver an initial volume of one million tissue-culture derived Jatropha curcas plants using JOil’s proprietary tissue culture technology by 2011. JOil is using material from its own global germplasm collection. JOil, in partnership with Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory, has developed a protocol which enables the production of millions of true to type clones through tissue culture.

This protocol has been tested on a small scale at KFB and other international tissue culture facilities, and the new project will be the first commercial production of Jatropha curcas using tissue culture technology.
