Nursery practices in oil palm: a manual.

Book cover for Nursery practices in oil palm: a manual.

Description

This manual describes practices conducted in the pre-nursery and the main nursery from the reception of germinated seed- or tissue-culture produced ramets to the production of high-quality field-ready plants. These practices involve nursery set-up, soil preparation, sowing, potting-on, watering, fertiliser application, pest and disease control, weeding and culling. In addition to these normal nursery practices, additional chapters are provided on quarantine nursery practices (requirements for the importation of material from sources outside the country) and DNA screening of nursery plants (pre-field planting screening for desirable traits). The manual forms part of a series in 'Techniques in Plantation Science' and may be seen as the stage describing procedures/techniques between those described in the manuals, in the same series, especially those on Seed Production in Oil Palm and the forthcoming Field Trialling in Oil Palm. Target audiences are nursery growers, planters, students and researchers in agriculture, plant breeders and end users interested in the practicalities of producing high quality oil palm planting materials for commercial production and breeding.
