DATE INDUSTRY NEWS

Here I will try and keep you up to date what is happening in the Australian Date Industry - for more information visit Australian Date Growers Association

Tissue Culture plants

In Australia we have very tight Bio-Security - this is great in one respect - keeps the pest and diseases out that we don't want - tho this makes new planting material harder to get into Australia - we got to work with what we got here (original plants imported from the USA back in late 80's early 90's)
 
Are you looking to expand your date farm in the future - In speaking with Nabil Ahmad researcher we have been working with over the last few years - he has advised me that they are ready to take orders for certain varieties of date palms. Nabil has been able to source inflorescence from the original palms (true to type - not tissue culture).
Varieties able to be propagated this year - for 2021 delivery - there is an 18 month turn around - from initial tissue culturing to getting the palms ready for the field
Females:
  • Barhee
  • Medjool
Males:
  • Jarvis
  • Fard
All palms will come with a certificate of Authentication
Price $125.00 + GST - to confirm order a 15% deposit is required
To order or enquire please email Nabil on nabeeldeeb@yahoo.com
