Abstract/Summary The implementation of a forest nursery accreditation policy is a major step towards improving the success of Philippine forestry. However, among the major requisites for the successful implementation of the policy are the substantial knowledge and skills of nursery operators to produce high quality seedlings and a full appreciation of tree farmers and forestry project implementers of the multiple benefits of using high quality planting stock. For this purpose, a best management practice guide for production of high quality seedlings was developed as part of the implementation of ACIAR Project ASEM/2006/091. Information and technologies from various sources were extracted, screened and collated to come up with a robust manual for smallholder-based high quality seedling production. This paper discusses the process of developing the BMP manual, presents the summary of its content and provides suggestions for further development of the material.
