Horticulture Instructors Travel to Florida


In May, Drs. John Sherman and Buddy Tignor traveled to Apopka, FL to visit several of the largest plant tissue culture operations in the country. There were also instructors from Wilkes Community College and Southeastern Community College. All were participating in a BioNetwork grant entitled Plant Micropropagation Collaborative.

Plant tissue culture is taught as part of several horticulture courses at Haywood Community College and we may soon have a course dedicated to this important Biotechnology Application.
