Increasing Production of Nursery Stock by Improvements in Bundling and Packing

Increases in the cost of production, particularly labor cost, make it necessary to mechanize our nursery operations as much as possible. Mechanization usually means a speed up of work or a reduction in the length of time from seedling or transplant bed to finished bundle of trees. Such reduction in time not only cuts the cost of production (if crew is same size) but also reduces the chance of roots drying out through exposure to air and sun. The present layout of the packing shed here at the Russ Nursery was developed to increase production of nursery stock without adding to the cost (fig.1).
