THE PLANT PLUGGING TECHNOLOGY IS THE WAY FORWARD………………
At Grace Rock Farm we offer the ultimate solution
Plant Plugging refers to the technique of producing seedlings for the grower. In developed countries, the term nursery bed does not exist in the sense that the plant plugging technology is adopted 100%
Specialized seed care for vegetables is no longer the privilege of large scale farmers. It has become necessary for smallholder farmers, to seek professional care for their vegetable seeds in order-, to guarantee maximum germination rates. This is now possible near to you thanks to Grace Rock Farms.
The need to use modern technology in germination of seedlings cannot be overemphasized. This is particularly important if unnecessary crop failure is to be avoided. The conventional methods of growing vegetables from seeds, has demonstrated poor germination rates leading to crop failure. Not only does this impact negatively on the total crop yield, but also results in losses that could easily be avoided given the fact that seeds are expensive, Hybrid seeds are expensive. This means that a farmer can either ruin or maximize on their crop yield, depending on the farming method adopted.
It has been shown that a farmer runs the risk of up to 30% germination failure rate using conventional methods of growing vegetables from the seed. On other hand, vegetable seeds that have been grown using modern technology in greenhouses have a germination success rate of between 85-97%. Grace Rock Farms takes the risk on behalf of the farmer because the farmer will only pay for what has germinated. Our aim is to ensure that the farmer does not get hurt
