Seeds are often grown in nurseries and then transplanted to the field.what is the advantage of this?

Dear student,

Transplantation   is the method of growing plants in which indirect seeding is done. In this method, first seeds are grown into seedlings inside a controlled environment of nurseries and then seedlings are transplanted to a field.  

This method has many  advantages   such as: 

The seeds are not exposed to birds, rats,  snails and other biotic  and   abiotic   stress, which has a chance in direct seeding.

 In this method, there is lesser ​crop-weed competition, as main plant  and weeds are not of similar age. 

In this method, even the foreign plants get time to acclimatise and so then can grow well in the new place.
