The rice seeds used for this nursery are outstanding hybrid rice seeds BCA 18 F1. The seed processing method for this seeding takes around 2 to 3 weeks, which is useful for preparing plants to be put in the field or rice fields. PT. Benih Citra Asia’s newest product is BCA 18 F1.

The rice nursery should be spread out across a large area to make it easy to maintain. Rice nurseries must also be exposed to direct sunshine, but not too close to lights that could draw nighttime attacks. Sowing in the nursery is the method of seeding. The sowing technique has the advantage of being more seed efficient, growing evenly, and being easier to plant.
