Franco—Moroccan producer Idyl has announced the launch of a new start-up, Maghreb Palm Biotechnologies, a move that reflects the company’s desire to bolster its specialist position within the sector.
Located near Agadir, Morocco, the Maghreb Palm Biotechnologies laboratory currently provides certified in vitro seedlings to the Moroccan and other North African markets, as well as to the Near and Middle East and to date-producing countries in Asia.
“Specialised in the organogenesis multiplication method, Maghreb Palm complies with all international technical requirements and guarantees the purity of the plants and their strong productivity potential,” the group stated in a press release. “The Maghreb Palm laboratory offers high agronomic and commercial potential varieties like Medjool, Boufegous, Bouzekri and Aziza, and has full capacity to satisfy any other specific requirements.”
According to Idyl, Maghreb Palm’s ‘à la carte’ service includes the structure of new palm plantations, advice, follow-up assistance and technology transfer.
