4. Crop Planning: Propagation Protocols, Schedules, and Records

A successful nursery provides healthy, high-quality plant materials ready to plant when clients need them. For areas with a pronounced dry season, clients usually need plants at the beginning of the rainy season. For areas with adequate rainfall all year or that can be irrigated, the outplanting date may be anytime. In addition to being ready on time, plants must also be of the correct species, quantity, genetic source, size, age, and container type, as defined by target plant requirements described in Chapter 3, Defining the Target Plant.
