A nursery bed is a specially designed and prepared portion of land set aside for raising seedlings, it’s a transit for the tender young plants before they are established / planted in the field. The importance of the nursery bed can’t be over emphasised as many farmers lose over 50% of seeds while in the nursery due to factors such as;
- Soil borne pests
- Disease such as damping off
- Poor watering
- Weeds control and many others.
