Promoting vegetable nurseries as small-scale enterprises


SVVCP production team (Punjab) has developed a growing media from locally available substrates (coco coir, sugarcane press mud and rice hull ash). This media is two times cheaper than commercially available peat moss. Mr. Allah Bachaya and Mr. Ashiq Hussain among SVVCP farmers community in Muzaffargarh, adopted this media and are growing tomato nursery in this media. They will harvest tomatoes earlier due to transplanting of healthy nursery without transplanting shock in the main field.
