About us

Vitropalm Technology (VPT) is a team made up of an Agronomy engineer and a Biologist who have well over 18 years of experience in the field of Date Palm Tissue Culture.

Our experience has been acquired at the research station on Date Palm in Elche, Spain, called “Estación Phoenix” where well known partners have taken part in the project,such as Elche City Council, the “Generatitat Valenciana”, Alicante University, Elche University, the National Institute of Agronomic Research (INRA-France) and the Centre of International Cooperation of Agronomic Research for Development (CIRAD-France).

We have propagated quality adult Date Palm genotypes, without offshoots, from the Palm Grove of Elche, creating new commercial varieties. Moreover, we have also achieved the multiplication of international varieties, from theirs offshoots. These include Medjoul, Zahidi, Thori, Bouffegous and others.

The extensive knowledge and experience we have accumulated over the years has enabled us to multiply any variety from adults or juvenile samples of date palm with excellent results.
