Karen Brock


Karen owns and operates Brocklands Pty Ltd with her husband, a diversified horticultural business, supplying plants and tissue culture material to the soft berry and fruit root stock industries, operating a tissue culture laboratory and specializing in plant pathogen cleaning.


Karen was a 2014 Nuffield Scholar who used this opportunity to explore the possibility of reducing the assessment time of soft berry fruit introductions into the commercial market by using molecular marker tools.  Karen has started a process of developing clean stock programs in order that growers can receive plants that are true to type and of high vigor.
