Vegetable Seedlings for Sale for Crop Farming

Where to Find Quality Vegetable Seedlings for Sale for Crop Farming

  Vegetable crop farming forms an important part of the South African agricultural production capacity. Farmers in the country who want to produce export-quality produce must keep in mind that premium-quality plant stock is critical as part of the foundation for crop success. To this end, it is vital to look for suppliers offering superior-quality vegetable seedlings for sale. Four factors to consider when choosing from the many suppliers offering vegetable seedlings for sale are discussed below, helping newcomers to crop farming make informed buying decisions.  
  1. Safety and Best Practices
  International accreditation for Good Agricultural Practices (Global GAP) certification supports a bulk supplier’s claim for quality production and safety. This gives the farmer the assurance that the supplier follows internationally recognised standards in the application of chemicals, record-keeping regarding procedures followed, the site where the plugs are produced, and more. To achieve Global GAP certification, the supplier must meet all the requirements for certification.   Hishtil SA, as a leading bulk-supply nursery offering a range of grafted and ungrafted vegetable seedlings for sale, meets the requirements. The nursery is the first commercial bulk supplier in South Africa to have achieved Global GAP certification. This underpins the nursery’s claim to the production of premium-quality plugs.

  1. Expert Guidance and Ongoing Technical Support
