The FoodHub corporation is involved in the development of GrowLabs in Kazakhstan. This country is particularly interesting for the propagation of disease-free material because of its large agricultural potential and lack of healthy plants.
The GrowLab that the FoodHub Corporation developed specifically for Kazakhstan is being built near Almaty and will initially be used to propagate rootstocks for apple trees and seed potatoes.
The laboratory will be led by specialists from the University of Almaty and will be operational from January 2020. Next to the GrowLab a greenhouse is being built for hardening crops to make them suitable for the often difficult climate.
