Nutrient Rich Raised Bed Nurseries i.e. Mat nursery

In order to produce young healthy saplings, a healthy nutrition rich soil bed is required which is called Mat nursery. Due to mat nursery farmers can produce healthy, young saplings which are uniform in size and easy to use in machinery.

Requirements for a raised bed nursery are a layer of healthy soil mix arranged on a raised firm surface.  It uses less land hence reduces management of time. It requires fewer seeds and inputs such as organic fertiliser and water. Overall it reduces nursery costs by up to 50%.
