08. Lifting and Field Packing

The lifting season is a period of peak activity in a nursery. Seedling distribution operations may include pretreatment of seedlings or seedbeds, undercutting and lifting, grading, counting, packaging, storage and shpment of plants. Careful advance planning, purchase of supplies and timely maintenance of equipment are essential to maintain a seedling lifting and distribution schedule that may process 1 to 2 million seedlings daily.
