RBTC was established in 2013 as main nucleus of innovative virus-free seedling production techniques (in the County and potentially in the wider NUTS II region) and generator of partnership activities related to research, training and development in agriculture.

The seedlings produced in this manor are disease free and can improve the competitiveness of the producers that uses them – the virus-free plants are less susceptible to disease and give higher yields. The centre is also developing research potential and advisory component in hydroponic technology that will improve the employability of highly qualified work force in the country as well as improve the overall success rate and profitability of the entrepreneurs that use them. This branch of research will enable new methods and models of production of seedlings and planting materials, and advising the existing and new agricultural producers and providing them with full support in their production ventures.
