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.
