Plant Propogation and Nursery Management ICAR ecourse PDF download E krishi shikshaThe difficulty of procuring tree seeds and their rising cost makes it necessary to find means to increase seedling survival and growth. Nurseries provide the necessary control of moisture, light, soil and predators and allow production of healthy and hardy seedlings. Here are some steps to make construction of a nursery and seedling culture more successful. An ideal location would be a place near the house so that the nursery is often and well taken cared of , with good soil, near a reliable source of water and where water does not stagnate. Avoid placing the nursery or raising species in an area where existing species of the same family have pest and disease problems. Remove stumps, roots, rhizomes and stones in the area. Leaves and other non-wood debris can be separated and made into compost.
A nursery is a place where plants are propagated and grown to a desired age. They include retail nurseries which sell to the general public, wholesale nurseries which sell only to businesses such as other nurseries and to commercial gardeners , and private nurseries which supply the needs of institutions or private estates. Nurseries may supply plants for gardens, for agriculture, for forestry and for conservation biology. Some of them specialize in one phase of the process: propagation, growing out, or retail sale; or in one type of plant: e. Some produce bulk stock, whether seedlings or grafted, of particular varieties for purposes such as fruit trees for orchards, or timber trees for forestry. Some produce stock seasonally, ready in springtime for export to colder regions where propagation could not have been started so early, or to regions where seasonal pests prevent profitable growing early in the season. Nurseries grow plants in open fields, on container fields, in tunnels or greenhouses.
