There are about 6,000 vegetable seedling nurseries and a large number of fruit and ornamental nurseries in the country. The machineries have been developed for vegetable, fruit and ornamental nurseries. These are for sieving rooting media (FYM, sand, soil vermicompost and cocopeat), mixing of media, protray filling and seeding for raising nurseries in protrays for vegetable crops. For fruit and ornamental crop nurseries the bag filler has been developed.

- Media mixer for 1 tonne/hr sand, FYM, soil and vermicompost.
- Rotary protray dibbler cum vacuum seeder for vegetable nurseries with a capacity of 150 protrays/hr.
- Automatic portray filling, dibbling, seeding and watering machine with a capacity of 200 protrays/hr.
