  • Patent number: 11116157
    Abstract: Methods of propagating a Cannabis cutting are provided. A method of propagating a Cannabis cutting can include: providing a coherent growth substrate comprising man-made vitreous fibres bonded with a cured binder composition, the growth substrate having a density in the range of 60 kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m3) to 70 kg/m3; inserting the Cannabis cutting into the growth substrate at a location where the growth substrate does not have a seed hole; and providing a nutrient solution having an electrical conductivity value between 1.6 milli-Siemens per centimeter (mS/cm) and 2.4 mS/cm to the Cannabis cutting in the growth substrate.

  • Patent number: 11091767
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for improving competency of plant cells, such as corn plant immature embryo for bacterial-mediated transformation comprising contacting the plant cells, such as corn plant immature embryo with an effective amount of polyethylene glycol (PEG) for a period of time prior to transformation. The ability to store and maintain competent plant cells, such as corn plant immature embryo for transformation and tissue culture allows more efficient planning and execution of large-scale experiments by providing flexibility of peak production hours, or during unplanned disruptions in the production process. These methods are useful in preserving the viability of plant cells, such as corn plant immature embryo in various storage conditions, thus improving their competency for transformation and tissue culture.
