Commercial micropropagation in Germany
Since the first experiments of Gottlieb Haberlandt (1854-1945) in the early 1900 on the in vitro cultivation of plant tissue, the fields of application have expanded from research of plant physiology to applications in breeding, molecular and microbiology and it became also an important tool for commercial plant production (Laimer and Rücker, 2003). Different fields of application and their perspectives will be discussed. Numbers of commercial micropropagation in Germany will be presented from 2004 to 2017 and possible reasons for changes investigated.
