dc.description.abstractThe objective of this study was to determine annual fixed costs of operating field nurseries in Ohio differentiated by size of firm and species of Plant. In the 50-acre nursery analyzed, fixed costs per salable plant were $11.31 for Taxus, $8.08 for Juniperus, $7.56 for Viburnum, $25.09 for Acer rubrum, $17.16 for Malus, and averaged $11.29 for all spec1es. In the 200-acre nursery they were $4.90 for Texua, $3.48 for Juniperus, $3.27 for Viburnum, $10.87 for Acer rubrum, $7.43 for Malus, and averaged S4.88 for all species. This very significant increase in efficiency when going from the 50-acre to the 200-acre field nursery is attributed to the more efficient use of buildings, machinery, and equipment of the large nursery over the small.en_US
