Abstract/Summary The quality of planting material is one of the key factors that determine the success of tree farming and reforestation activities. In the Philippines, low quality seedlings are commonly used in smallholder plantings for reasons such as the limited supply of high quality seedlings and smallholders’ lack of awareness of the benefits of using high quality planting stock. The ACIAR-funded seedling enhancement project has been carrying out training and extension activities to enhance the knowledge of tree farmers about the importance of high quality planting material and improve the capacity of nursery operators in the production of high quality seedlings. Various field trials were established to gain new knowledge on tree farming and to demonstrate to smallholders the result of adopting the best management practices.
