Plantalogica describes the flower development of your plants

Plantalogica carries out research into the plants of growers, propagators and breeders in order to determine how these plants will develop. By opening small growth buds under the dissecting microscope the development of the future flowers becomes visible.

Such a bud begins as an undifferentiated apex (growing tip) with leaf primordia. This can - over time –  develop, for example, into a flowering truss. By following the way the main flowers develop we are not only able to say something about the number of trusses per plant but also about the development stage of these trusses.

Describing the development of the flower – flower mapping– can contribute to an increase in the economic value of plant material in crop production chains.
