Based upon the discussion above, it can be said that conventional micropropagation systems consume large amounts of supplies, electricity and fuel, release large amounts of pollutants to the environments, and are labor intensive. Much time is also required to grow cultures, producing a relatively high percentage of physiologically poor plants.
Thus, in order to make the future micropropagation systems more efficient and profitable, we need to use a minimum amount of resources, to produce little or no environmental pollutants and to produce plants with high physiological quality and with a minimum loss of regenerated plants. In order to minimize the amount of environmental pollutants, the consumption of resources must be minimized by efficient use of resources. Then, the costs for resources and for the handling and processing of pollutants will reduce naturally.
