DescriptionThe Montana Conservation Seedling Nursery (MCSN) in Missoula produces 750,000 container seedlings annually in containers ranging in size from 66 cm3 (4 in3) up to 61 L (16 gal) pots. The MCSN is a production facility with no research funding. When we encounter a promising idea for improving our seedlings or the efficiency of nursery operations, we rarely perform detailed tests. Our standard is a "quick and dirty test." If initial results are promising and we can eliminate anticipated risks, we quickly go operational with the change.
