Furthermore, the said nurseries are named and will integrate the following innovation:
- Farms & Nurseries- will install the semi-automated vegetables seedling production unit to produce around 70,000 high-quality seedlings per batch.
- Mushroom Development Center- would make way for the cultivation of a new variety of mushroom and train farmers on how to generate income for different types of mushrooms.
- Tissue Culture Laboratory- aims to produce quality and disease-free planting material for farmers.
Moreover, the state would also provide post-harvest management and marketing infrastructure to farmers. Also, the goals in horticulture nurseries would focus on planting materials, expansion, rejuvenation, cultivation, and nutrient and pest management systems.
