Description: Nursery plants are in a period of high risk from the time they leave the protected environment of the nursery to when they are outplanted. During handling and shipping, nursery stock may be exposed to many damaging stresses, including extreme temperatures, desiccation, mechanical injuries, and storage molds. This is also the period of greatest financial risk, because nursery plants have reached their maximum value right before shipping (Paterson et al., 2001). Adams and Patterson (2004) concluded that improper handling of nursery stock had more impact on plant quality than the type of outplanting tool.
