What is a Plug Nursery?

RUTAM VORA | Updated on January 10, 2018

A plug nursery is an Israeli farming technique, wherein seedlings for different crops are nurtured under controlled environment in a net house.

The net house must have open space around it, and get six-eight hours of sunlight during the day.

The plug nursery predominantly uses media made from a mixture of coco peat, vermiculite, perlite and nutrients in a proportion of 8:1:1.

The seeds supplied by farmers will be sown in a tray of 10x10 pockets for seedlings. These seedlings are then supplied to farmers who use them in a net house.
