how is transplanting useful to the farmers?

1. It extends the growing season by starting plants indoors, before outdoor conditions are favourable.
2. It protect young plants from diseases and pests until they are sufficiently established.
3. It avoid germination problems by setting out seedlings instead of direct seeding.
4. It promote better development of root and shoot system.

1. TO GET AN EARLIER START:This is the reason warmth-loving plants such as tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants are seeded indoors about two months before the weather is mild enough for them to be in the garden. Then when you move them to the garden as plants, it is as though your season started about two months sooner than it really did.2. TO PROTECT PLANTS WHILE THEY ARE YOUNG AND MOST VULNERABLE:Pests such as slugs and cutworms can wipe out an entire bed of tiny just-sprouted plants. But vigorous seedlings when moved to the garden can have a much better survival rate. Transplants aren't pest-proof but they are less likely to succumb to pests than the brand-new babies.3. TO SAVE GARDEN SPACE:Suppose you have bush beans bearing in the only space available for late lettuce. By starting the lettuce in containers, you give the beans time to complete their bearing cycle before the ground is given over to lettuce. If you seeded the lettuce directly, in time to get a crop, you'd have to phase out the beans before they had finished their job.4 SAVING IN IRRIGATION WATER5 GOOD STAND ESTABLISHMENT6 INCREASE IN INTENSITY OF CROPPING

Transplanting is useful to farmers as:

1. It enables us to select only healthy seedlings for the plants.

2. The process of transplantation promotes better penetration of roots in the soil.

3. It promotes better development of shoot system of plants.

4. The process of transplantation enables us to plant the seedlings at the right spacing so as to ensure the uniform availability of water, nutrients and sunlight to the plants.
