Nutrient Rich Raised Bed Nurseries i.e. Mat nursery(2016)Phase I

Producing young and robust seedlings is a challenge for rice farmers everywhere. Especially the farmers were finding it difficult to use machinery for transplanting crops like rice and ragi.

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.
