      Below is not the video, but a recent press release from BioAgronomics. I would be interested to watch when released. I am curious if they think the future of breeding involves just tissue culture and highly breed cultivars, some sort of Monsanto IP model of licensed tissue culture or companies claiming IP rights on cultivars that sue/force existing breeders out of marketplace?

      ------------------------------------

      VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Segra International Corp., an AgTech firm focused on cannabis tissue culture and BioAgronomics Group, an internationally recognized cannabis breeding and consulting company, are pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement to distribute numerous premium cannabis cultivars within the Canadian Market. Through decades of genetic selection and intensive breeding efforts by world-renowned industry experts, including Robert Clarke and Mojave Richmond, BioAgronomics Group has developed a portfolio of proven classic and proprietary cannabis cultivars. Now, through Segra’s Plant Tissue Culture technology, this premium genetic catalog will be available to Canadian Licensed Producers and select international markets for the first time.

      “BioAgronomics Group is thrilled to be joining forces with Segra International to advance the Canadian cannabis industry through providing high-quality, unique cultivars,” commented Robert Clarke, co-founder of BioAgronomics Group. “We expect this partnership will lead to increased access to popular and agronomically productive cannabis cultivars for licensed growers in Canada and internationally.”

      In addition to the carefully selected “classic cultivars” curated by BioAgronomics Group specialists, Segra will also be able to supply proprietary and exclusive cannabis varieties from the BioAgronomics Group portfolio. These proprietary genetics were bred for potency and novel cannabinoid and terpene profiles, as well as ideal crop morphology and heightened pathogen resistance. Preparing BioAgronomics Group’s proven cultivars utilizing Segra’s tissue culture technology will ensure consistently high-performing plants that offer high yields of enhanced THC and terpene content. As with all Segra tissue culture products, the plantlets arrive as verified clean stock. Segra and BioAgronomics Group are pleased to offer these premium cultivars in our effort to help growers start with better genetics to realize higher profits.

      “We are incredibly excited at the opportunity to partner with the team of industry-recognized experts at BioAgronomics Group and offer their cultivars, through tissue culture, to Canadian producers,” said Segra CEO Jamie Blundell. “BioAgronomics Group has a tremendous amount of experience developing premium cannabis cultivars for commercial production, and we’re honored that they are trusting Segra with their valuable genetic IP. Partnerships with leading experts and breeders, like BioAgronomics Group, combined with the benefits and biosecurity of plant tissue culture, will help producers dramatically improve financial performance as the industry and consumer preferences continue to evolve.”

        I will just add that if a company's plan is to claim long-held IP rights over most current cultivars, then a good solution would be some kind of gofundme style class action lawsuit to invalidate said IP under law. When enough pissed off people band together, shit gets done... Nothing makes a troll piss themselves more than the thought of losing IP rights via invalidation. I hope I am wrong, but the specter of Federal legalization, would be the time for big business to make a play with IP. The irony is that big business is only capable of mids, no matter how good the genetics are. So, the fucktards, like Phylos, make grandiose claims about the future and fail to deliver. Is this that? Not knocking tissue culture - been reading some very interesting things - and this seems like a good fit for large scale production, but how is this the future of breeding? Need to grow out said tissue culture, if altered genetically, to see if traits are expressed. Garbage in, garbage out means only as good as algorithm. People smoke it not computers.

        Looks like we need to wait to April to see the TBD Future??? What happens then???

          naa think everyone has realized TC is not the way at scale.. great to start out or save but thats about it..there just an invester sink hole like alot of canadas cannabis. 1 way could be needed is for feild grown getting thousnads of clones ready(but still need to be hardened off grown to decent size).. but at that point just doing biomass so seeds are fine.. seeds are faster then tc so locking in uber consistent seeds is better cheaper faster esp when talking majot numbers churned out and most is going into pens or food. just no scenerio i see tc being used for reproduction in cycles where it would save time or money or space. plus prob will have to lobby to allow pgrs antibiotics in smoke and even if dont need to lobby folks aren't down esp as they use some gnarly ones in tc..

          ya hopefully someone taped it... they dont/have not released the old footage themselves which is nuts...

              Yea, that is sort of what I read. Someone was claiming to have a SOP for people that needed 10,000+ clones for outdoor planting. Interesting side about residual crap left over from tissue culture process!

                In volcanic soil we trust

                Whether your checkin out bud porn or regular porn from 1975, you wont catch anyone trimming thier bush
                BTW that pluton sucked. We grew it outside-looked awesome, smelled great, everything but when dried, it had 0% high.
                I see it as a kind of wonder drug of our time - Dr.Lester Grinspoon
                In 1895, ‘Arabs . . . Armenians
                [and] Turks’ grew Cannabis indica in central California to supply hash
                to compatriots in San Francisco, and to smoke ‘kiff’ themselves.
                Additionally, the u.s. army planted
                marijuana in Panama in the 1920s for testing its effects on soldiers
                The Dutch paid the Khoisan in 1713 with drugs rather than
                food, goods or cash.
                For the purposes of this research, Roger Adams had obtained red oil extract of the plant legally from the United States Department of the Treasury

                  all well and good but still have to harden off and grow them out inside and then a greenhouse and tuff to get to serious numbers for outdoor because of the indoor space still needed. def great for orchids that are hard to get seeds from and cant just slice off dozens of cuts off of one plant. once teh states goes properly legal there wont be need for special low thc cbd cuts.

                  def valuable for companies starting up to have a place can get thousands of plants shipped to them like a nursery.. anyway have been wrong before but while some experiementing none of teh big guys currently use TC other then storing not for normal repro.

                  good for science as can store alot of plants while doing breeding/testing. in canada the most important thing ATM is producing quality not swag that sits for 6-12 months before making it to a store were it sits for months in 1 gram jars so can say they produced more every quarter/reducing per gram cost.

                  also to whoever said samanto, dont be silly, remember everyone needs to make money, doing it is why cannabis is legal in so many places. without peopel pushing boundries and getting money to "go legit" is why things change, not from 420 rallies.

                  sorry, derailed the thread.. hopefully buddy at future cannabis project taped it

                    the people you list, what breeding have they done? what strains have they created.. other than yourself they're just talking heads looking for something other than the scared one.
                    I'll never forget that famous Red grapefruit cut of NYCD or ever stop looking for it, 1 of the worlds best. -CONNOISSEUR GENETICS

                        I would love to hear Robert Clarke hear talking about the Past old Landraces in Depth.

                        I tried find a Video, only thing i once seen with him is him talking of Turkish Hemp.

                        I alwasy was interested in what he says, but most part only heard classification topics , no, actually something more, but he always emphasizes Classification..

                        Im more interested in inner Dynamics of Seedechange in the Past, as said he mentions it too, but would love more emphasis on it.
                        How were Landraces made, what proove he has gathered about that. How much influence from foreign Contrys. In Depth. Im shure he has a lot of Info about it.
