THE HIGHEST QUALITY STANDARDS
Advanced growing equipment & techniques
With technical and financial assistance, the Cooperative have adopted advanced growing equipment and techniques, including:
Introduction of advanced seedling germination containers
The quality of the seedling depends largely on the type of containers in which it is grown. State-of-the-art conical growing containers have replaces traditional "poly-bag" containers to develop long toots needed to ensure survivability once planted in often-difficult field conditions.
Improvement of seedling growing environment
Including greenhouses to ensure a faster and more robust development of tree seedlings.
Introduction of Low-Cost growing media
That ensures proper growth of seedlings with long and robust roots. The growing media is mixed according to leading international standards and is comprised of locally available ingredients.
Improvement of Fertilization:
The cooperative developed a lower cost and labor-intensive fertilization program that provides all essential nutrients for the proper growth of good quality seedlings.
Improvement of Irrigation Systems
to ensure more uniform water distribution needed for optimal plant growth and to minimize water loss
Improvement of fertilization
The Cooperative nurseries have improved their production methods, seed preparation, sowing and growing techniques, storage and transportation methods, business development, record keeping, and planning approaches.
