HEAD OF DATE PALM FIELD RESEARCH AND PROCUREMENT MANAGER
My expertise is in recognition of different varieties of date palm mother plants, viruses, and genetic problems in sub-tropical climates. I have extensive experience in inoculation section of the tissue cultured laboratories for preparing procreative tissues of mother date palm in order to cuts to small parts to create callosum tissue in method Somatic Embryogenesis in vitro section. I have studied these laboratory techniques under the supervision of Dr. John William. Spur at International Plant Laboratory in the UK. In addition, I have extensive hands-on experience with greenhouse seedling of dates and walnuts.
In addition to the above mentioned specializes, I have purchase and sells agriculture and laboratory specialized products history for example; pesticides ,fungicides ,soils and fertilizers suitable for growing seedling recommendation appropriate based on type plant pests , diseases and plants needs grow.
Also equipment and monitoring pressurized and drip irrigation systems and equipment for the production of fog and humidity greenhouses of date palms , walnut and banana seedling growing.
