Plug Nursery

It is a precision farming technique developed by Israel. In this technique, seedlings are placed under a net house. The house is surrounded by open space and should get six to eight hours of sunlight. The nursery uses a mixture of vermiculture, coco peat, perlite and other nutrients as a medium to grow seedlings in a proportion of 1:8:1. They are sown in a 10*10 tray. The main advantages of the technique include -
• fast growing of the seeds compared to conventional seed growing techniques (from day 1 of sowing rather 7-8 days in conventional techniques);
• wastage of seedlings is minimum;
• farmers will get seedlings on time during the growing period and can have an early harvest;
• increased incomes to the farmers.

Plug Nursery is currently being promoted in the state of Gujarat in India under Indo-Israel Agriculture Work Plan.
