The Briggs Nursery produces a wide variety of genera through tissue culture and traditional propagation methods. These include woody ornamentals, table grapes, wine grapes, and forestry products. They also grow perennials and grasses for commercial purposes. In addition to their own products, the nursery also offers contract-grow crops.

The Briggs Nursery has been a leader in tissue-culture production and propagation methods. In the year 1999, it was named NMPRO Nursery Grower of the Year. In its new facility, which features a tissue-culture lab, three growing chambers, and a research room, the company plans to propagate as many as 17 million micro plants each year.

Plant germplasm derived from tissue culture can be used for a variety of applications, including conservation and regeneration of rare and difficult-to-propagate plant species. It can also be used to produce transgenic and secondary metabolites. This method also has the potential to reduce propagule production costs. It can be applied to many different crops, and is especially useful in agriculture.

Tissue culture is a great alternative to seed-based propagation. It can produce large numbers of plants without compromising genetic stability. It is particularly useful for species with poor seed set or complicated germination requirements. This method is also useful for restoring endangered species.

Tissue-culture techniques are more expensive than traditional methods, but they produce high-quality, uniform planting material that can be used year-round. However, they require large investments in equipment, trained personnel, and clean water. The technology also requires specialized knowledge.

The production of tissue-cultured plants has increased in developing countries by 14% since 1995. This increased production has reached many growers in less developed countries, including many in Asia, Latin America, and Central America. This growth in demand for tissue-cultured plants has led to a decrease in net margins and has allowed new companies to enter the market and lower net margins.
briggs nursery moved to a new site near Elma, Wash.

Briggs Nursery is a century-old company located in Elma, Washington. The company has been a leader in tissue-culture production and propagation. In 1999, Briggs was named the NMPRO Nursery Grower of the Year. In 2006, the company moved to a new site, which now includes a tissue-culture lab and a high-technology greenhouse. The new facility allows Briggs to diversify its plant offerings and turn inventory faster.

The Briggs operation began around the central part of the new setup, and has expanded north and west. After the move, Briggs tested for contamination. Testing revealed that the soil was contaminated, but not in the extent that could have caused health issues. The company began testing the groundwater in the area after determining that it was safe. The groundwater contamination is consistent with areas where crops have been grown. Raphael Nursery

Briggs Nursery had undergone several changes in recent years, and the most recent sale was to International Garden Products. The company hired a consultant, J. Guy, to modernize Briggs. But in late January, Briggs was placed into court receivership. A decision on what to do next is still pending, but several suitors have already expressed an interest in buying the company.
briggs nursery entered the Voluntary Cleanup Program in 1999

Briggs Nursery was involved in a voluntary clean-up of contaminated soil and groundwater on its site at 715 South Bank Road in Porter, Washington. The site previously housed a dairy farm and had petroleum contamination resulting from fuel pumps, underground storage tanks, and an adjacent generator room. The pollution level was above state cleanup levels when the nursery entered the Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP) in 1999. Briggs removed about 300 tons of contaminated soil and installed five groundwater monitoring wells.
