Through self adjudication and independent ruling, Ruff's Greenhouses has proven they grow excellent seedlings, with a recovery rate of 100 percent or better. There is no more than a two percent cull rate in boxes. By self imposed quality control measures, Ruff's Greenhouses achieves the highest quality standards in the areas of height, root collar diameter, dry root weights, root to shoot ratios and foliage requirements. In 1994 and 1995 our harvested crops met or exceeded sowing requests.
crops were again in over run with a high quality of standards achieved.
The entire crop balanced out between 40 and 60 percent at target specification.
It takes approximately seven months for a tree to go from seed to seedling.
During this time they are tested to make sure the root growth matches
the development of the shoots.Tissue analysis occurs on a regular basis
to test nutrient levels.
