Soil and Water Management Plans for Bareroot Nurseries

A soil management plan should include historical and current environmental assets and liabilities, including geomorphic origin and past land use. Each nursery has its own unique soil, water, and climatic conditions, and these should be considered. Primarily, a plan should represent a team effort by the soils specialist and the nursery personnel who work the ground and raise the seedlings. With contributions from all those involved, the plan can address operational functions such as tillage, irrigation, cultivation, fertilization, trafficability, and harvesting. The success of a management plan as a useful tool depends upon the commitment of all concerned.
