nursery operations

Descriptor: Equipment
Description: Many nurseries use under-bench heating which stimulates seedling growth by warming the roots system. These systems also can be used to force ventilation up through the seedling foliage and significantly reduces incidence of foliar diseases, such as grey mold. The major drawback of underbench systems is that the tubes prohibit the use of forklifts in the greenhouse.
