INTRODUCTION
Each individual palm in oil palm plantation is a revenue-generating biological asset. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that the raised seedlings in the nursery and transplanted in fields are of superior quality. Nursery size may be small but it contains a large population of seedlings of tender age needing great care and skill to produce uniformly strong and healthy planting materials sustaining potential yields during its economic life span. Therefore, good establishment and upkeep of nursery activities are vital. Apparently, not all plantation personnel have hands-on experience in nursery practices. Those who had worked in new development projects would have acquired knowledge and experience in this specialized segment. It cannot be overemphasized that personnel void of experience but being tasked to the charge of nursery duties receive adequate training in all aspects of nursery set up and operating practices.
