An interview scheduled was used for the collection of data in ; and the results shows that Findings also shows that farm size, annual income ,innovativeness, communication exposure, training received, and involvement in nursery have positive significant relationships and constraints during production; and marketing has negative significant relationship with the level of knowledge of the nursery owners.
However, the result of stepwise multiple regression indicates that This indicates that there are other variables working behind the level of knowledge of the nursery owners during production and marketing. Keywords: Nursery, nursery owners, innovativeness, knowledge Introduction According to Oxford dictionary, knowledge may be defined as facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education; and the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.
The importance of knowledge and information in the contemporary economy has been long established see, for example, Bell, ; Block, ; Toffler, ; Mandel, ; Jameson, , etc.
Thus, the purpose of this paper is not to assert that information is not important, but rather to reflect on the actual "role" that knowledge and information plays in the production and marketing of saplings, and what factors that affects the level of knowledge of the nursery owners. Nurseries are places where seedlings are raised for planting purposes. In the nursery, the young seedlings are tended from sowing to develop in such a way as to be able to endure the hard field conditions Mason, The nursery industry is a very wonderful and exciting business, as the production of plants for profit has the potential of providing many personal and financial rewards.
However, just as many other farming enterprises that appears to be very simple on the surface, the nursery business is very complex and requires a great deal of knowledge and skill not only in production, but also in labour management and marketing. The nursery industry is much diversified; hence, it is a business, and like any other business, the probability of success depends on imagination, determination, planning, and good management of the five major resources. A successful nursery producer needs knowledge of plants, soils, fertilizers, pesticides, irrigation, machinery, pruning, harvesting methods, overwintering techniques, packing and conveyance practices, etc.
It is not just about casting seed to the wind and watching the trees and profits grow. Throughout the world, nurseries come in various types and sizes.

At the other end of the scale are large commercial enterprises that employ dozens of people and grow millions of plants No matter the size of a nursery, for it to be financially viable, it needs a good and knowledgeable person with good management capacity Mason, Many potential producers do not realize the skill and knowledge required to produce a quality nursery crop in the field. Another crucial item that is often under-estimated is the amount of money that is required to produce a saleable plant.
Ahmed reported that nursery is one of the most important income based activities in Bangladesh, which has led to poverty reduction and socio-economic improvement of the poor section of the population. The nursery business has already cast a very positive impact on rural economy in terms of poverty alleviation and women empowerment. So, it is therefore important to have sufficient level of knowledge of the nursery owners for the production of quality saplings and for their financial viability.
