The Central Nursery is located in the main campus, Peechi. The nursery has a collection of quality planting materials of around 150 species, especially of native trees having high demand under timber yielding, fruit bearing, medicinal and endemic categories. The nursery guarantees the timely availability of planting material to the farmers, general public and various government departments. In addition to the above aspects, the nursery is engaged in handling a number of rare and threatened plant species from Western Ghats associated with many research programmes conducted by the Institute. Establishing the nursery techniques of different forest tree species in association with KFRI Seed Centre is the other major task of the Central nursery. The data generated in the nursery is used in the ongoing research programmes and is useful for all future research as well.
The other forest nurseries of KFRI are at Nilambur and Velupadam campus. More details about the plants and price of seedlings are available at Nursery page under service section of this website
