Nursery Owners and Managers

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Depending on the size and complexity of the nursery, owners and managers need experience in some or all of the following areas: the agriculture of plants, especially fruits, flowers and landscaping plants, and turf; business and accounting skills, including use of computers; agricultural economics, to determine the best methods for achieving maximum production; machinery and grounds maintenance. This experience can be gained through  mentoring from a more experienced manager, course work at a local community college, government sponsored programs to encourage farm education for those who were not raised on a family farm, and lower-level positions in a nursery.
