Nursery Stock Production training

Managing a production nursery involves more than just propagating and potting up plants. Even the small nursery must be able to not only producer plants, but do it at a pre determined cost, then sustain those plants before and during marketing. The nursery industry currently has a real need for people with skills and knowledge in managing production plant nurseries! This course provides a solid grounding for developing those skills.

This is an example of what you will do in the course:
Investigate existing wholesale nursery operations. 
Conduct tests to determine chemical and physical characteristics of three different potting mixes. 
Design a classified advertisement, to promote a wholesale nursery, in a specified publication. 
Analyse the management structure of an existing production nursery. 
Evaluate the efficiency of propagating and potting up plants
