In the event of problems, usually spontaneous, troubleshooting and solution development are carried out. A trained staff is responsible for maintenance and control systems in plant-growing rooms. They visually examine all media and plant material regularly and serve as a link between production and quality assurance staffs. Despite this, quality control and uniformity have been difficult to achieve in commercial micropropagation. Standard agricultural issues, such as plant source diversity, pests and disease, and the weather, have been complicated by the unique problems of placing a living plant into the production line.
