|30||Saplings of Livelihood-A success story in Commercial Nursery||
Availability of quality planting material is highly essential for successful commercial vegetable cultivation. Farmers generally prepare small nurseries in their backyard solely for personal usage. However in the event of pest and disease incidence, natural calamity or field mortality of plants in early stages, the farmer does not have sufficient time to raise new nursery. To address this issue farmer-groups in Self Help Groups (SHGs) were provided with polyhouses/nethouses for production of quality planting material on commercial basis in protected conditions.
