Date Palm Developments began as part of Twyford Plant Laboratories, the world’s first commercial-scale, plant micro-propagation company, specializing in tissue cultured ornamental and plantation plants. In the early 1980’s, Twyford began a major investment in research and development of a commercial micro-propagation system for Date Palm and created the specialist company Date Palm Developments. Since then DPD have developed through 30 years of research, investment and improvement to the present day D.P.D. Ltd.

In the mid 1980’s, DPD was the first to successfully establish micro-propagated Date Palms in the field, at Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates. From this point began the process of building acceptance of this new method of propagating the traditional Date varieties and the realization of the significant advantages of tissue cultured plants over conventional offshoot propagation.

There are now over 1.8 million DPD tissue cultured date palms planted across more than 25 countries worldwide. With our wealth of technical and commercial experience, gained over more than 30 years in the industry, we are proud of our reputation as a world leader in Date Palm micro-propagation.
