Trusted seedling raisers in Kenya

May 2, 2023

As a farmer, you have the option of either using seeds or seedlings. And the two options have their advantages and disadvantages. 

Here are some benefits of using seedlings on your farm or garden

  • Gives the crops a kick-start to the season. The use of seedlings leads to earliness in yields. The process of maturity is sped up and the harvest time comes early.  
  • Reduced time on the farm helps save the resources such as water, manure and fertilizer used for growing crops. 
  • Germination losses are reduced which increases the chance of yielding a higher yield as compared to seed planting.
  • Seedlings come in handy when the variety isn’t available in seed form or the seedlings give better crop characteristics as compared to seeds. A great example is the Hass Avacodo variety. 

Here’s a list of companies that are trusted to give the best seedling varieties

Not all seed companies deal with seedlings only seed propagated companies do this.

Propagation is the process of the breeding of specimens of a plant or animal by natural processes from the parent stock. In this case,
