Pathogen tested and cleaned planting material for over 100 SP varieties are stored in tissue culture and propagated as planting material at the National Agriculture Research Stations in Lae (Bubia), Aiyura and Tambul.

The NARI Kerevat station tissue culture lab is still getting up to capacity after fire destroyed the historic 75 year old buildings.

Orders for planting material can also be placed at NARI Laloki as well, for those in POM.

The material is sold at cost recovery (for materials), about K1.00 for a cutting I think - go to for more information or call Sir Alkan Tololo Research Centre on 478 4000 and ask to talk to either Pascal Pandau, Elick Guaf or Birte Komolong.

We're keeping the humble kaukau thriving. If people send in their SP varieties for PT cleaning, the resulting material, at the very least, will its usual double production per vine and per mound.
