S.G.A.S.A Annual Symposium at Sunshine Seedling Services


The team at Sunshine Seedling Services were thrilled to host the delegates of the Seedling Growers Association of South Africa while they toured varies nurseries around Kwa-Zulu Natal.

The group was split up and given a tour of the technical aspects of the nursery, and then a tour of the production side of the nursery. The main focus was the new Urbinati Seedling machine, which has been in operation for over a year at Sunshine Seedling Services. Sunshine Seedling Services also wanted to show how mechanisation had been implemented and reduced costs and labour units significantly. There were many awed expressions as the delegates watched the accuracy, speed, ease and precision of the Urbinati machine at work.  Sunshine Seedling Services are the agents for the Urbinati machinery in South Africa.

Sunshine Seedling Services were the proud recipients of the Chris Young Innovation Award for the most innovative nursery. Sunshine Seedling Services are recognised leaders in the nursery industry and have certainly set a precedent for quality standards and efficiency.
