Duarte Dry Creek Lab

 

Dry Creek Laboratories’ main focus is on micropropagation to meet demand for clonal rootstocks for our Prunus varieties, such as citrus, pistachio, walnut and avocado. The laboratory also propagates blackberries, raspberries, pomegranates, kiwis and other products that are still in development.  The laboratory has expanded DNI’s ability to continue its “growth through innovation” by making micropropagated clonal rootstocks commercially available for many fruit and nut trees for which they were previously not an option. In addition to micropropagation, Dry Creek Labs also expands the nursery’s research capabilities into other areas such as virus elimination and in vitro selection of rootstocks that can better tolerate environmental stress factors, such as salt and drought.
