Abstract/Summary Seedling production is a critical first step in the plantation forestry supply chain. Many publications have been produced on desirable practices for forestry seedling production by community forestry groups and smallholders, yet low seedling quality (in genetic and physical terms) seems to be the rule rather than the exception in these nurseries. A research project funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research is examining seedling production systems for smallholder forestry in Leyte and Mindanao in the Philippines, where seedlings are produced by government, community and private nurseries. This paper reviews some of the issues concerned in developing a best management practice (BMP) system of seedling production, based on observations in other industries. It is found that introduction of such a system involves a number of steps, can be costly, and may have unintended impacts, so that careful planning is needed before implementation.
