Accredited Nurseries

Availability of true to type, quality planting material is crucial for success of commercial horticulture. This necessitates having a net-work of Horticulture Nurseries which conform to Model Nursery Standards in terms of infrastructure, quality of seed and planting materials and adoption of nursery management practices. State Governments ensure supply of quality planting materials for fruit crops by enactment of Fruit Plant Nursery (Regulation) Act and enforcement of its provisions through licensing of horticulture nurseries.

National Horticulture Mission has taken initiative to specify the nursery standards by specifying Infrastructure required for setting up of model horticulture nursery etc. ICAR has recently come out with technical specification of horticulture planting material and its production procedure in a recently published document titled as “Handbook of Seed and Planting Material Testing Manual for Horticultural Crops”. Existing rules framed under Horticulture Nursery (Regulation) Acts provide for record keeping part for such nurseries. However, each one of them individually does not completely define a model horticulture nursery. Therefore, it is imperative to define a model nursery in all the three aspects of nursery infrastructure, production system & quality parameters of planting material and good nursery management practices in a comprehensive manner and put a nursery recognition regime in place. A recognized model horticulture nursery should function as a reliable source of supply of quality planting material for horticulture crops. With a view to ensure availability of good quality planting material as outlined above, NHB has started a system of recognition of horticulture nurseries on voluntary basis.

Scope:

  1. The scope of the scheme is to establish a network of quality nurseries across the country for the purpose of propagation and distribution of quality planting material of specified horticulture crops. The recognition shall be accorded to the nurseries for:
    1. Production of quality planting material of one or more specified crops by adopting Good Nursery management Practices,
    2. Nursery Premise only where sale of specified quality planting material of recognized source are being carried out by creating necessary infrastructure facilities and proper record keeping.
    Note: If different premises are being used for nursery, recognition of all these are required to be obtained separately and individually.
  2. The recognition shall be accorded to the nurseries for the crops specified in the document of recognition
  3. Recognition shall be granted as such or after up gradation as per requirement.
  4. Nursery farms licensed under State Act by competent authority shall be given provisional recognition for a period of one year under the purview of this scheme but their final recognition will be subject to assessment by technical committee.
  5. Recognition of nursery with NHB shall be period specific.

Procedure for Nursery Recognition and Renewal of Recognition

  1. The nursery seeking NHB recognition shall apply to NHB HQ at Gurgaon. Each such application shall be accompanied by layout of nursery showing location of infrastructure components and land utilization plan, details of technically qualified staff in the nursery, major farm machineries and operational manual prepared by nursery for selection and maintenance of mother plants, process followed for production of planting material and management of inventory of planting material. The Nursery shall submit details regarding source of mother plants used for propagation of horticulture plants in prescribed form and shall also maintain a register for sale of horticulture plants.
  2. The application form duly completed along with necessary enclosures shall be submitted to NHB, Head Office at Gurgaon.
  3. Each application will be considered by NHB based on criteria specified for recognition of nursery.
  4. The recognition of nursery by NHB shall generally be considered product wise/aspect wise as required.
  5. On receipt of the application for recognition, assessment would be done by agency identified by NHB with the help of a technical committee.
  6. Agency shall submit its assessment report to NHB along with recommendations.
  7. On the basis of the assessment report NHB shall decide whether to register the nursery with or without up-gradation.
  8. The decision of NHB shall be conveyed to the concerned nursery. In case of recognition, the period of validity of recognition with other terms and condition shall be indicated. In case of any deficiency, the nursery shall be given time frame for compliance; failing which, the application shall be rejected. In case of requirement, additional assessment visits may be undertaken.

Criteria for Nursery Assessment The criteria have been aligned with Infrastructural requirement of modal nursery and product specific technical requirement and adoption of good nursery practices for propagation of good quality planting material as detailed below:

  1. Product specific criteria to asses for capability and competence of nursery follow technical programme for specific crop as laid down in “Handbook of Seed and Planting Material Testing manual for Horticulture crops” prepared by ICAR.
  2. Prescribed nursery management practices and adoption of model layout plan.
Assessment Criteria: A system of Graded Certification: - It is essentially different from licensing of horticulture nurseries under provision of some act or administrative orders. It is based on continuous evaluation of source of parent material, propagation in disease free condition by adoption of technically prescribed method, adoption of good nursery management practices, reliable record keeping and training of staff. Each parameter will be critically examined by assessment team as per laid down criteria.
Following grading shall be provided:
Outstanding : *****
Excellent : ****
