​2. Plant Grafting System 

One of our inventions, the Grafting Cassette   is now commercially available.

TM​

Grafting is an agricultural technique that humans have used for a long time, however, efficient and stable production of grafted seedlings required craftsmanship and expertise.

By using Grafting Cassette  , anyone can graft plants immediately.
Furthermore, using the specialized automatic grafting machine will allow saving man-power and cost.
