WORK PLANNING IN HORTICULTURE

H.K. Krijgsman
A high labour productivity can only be achieved when, next to good work methods, modern tools and equipment and an optimum workspeed, provision is made for good planning of work. The latter can be roughly described as making certain that people can keep on working. Planning means thinking ahead according to the well-known questions: What should be done? When, where and how should it be done? Who should do it? As far as I know there is little experience in the systematic application of work planning in horticulture.

Taking into consideration the importance of planning as an indispensable aid to management, we have been experimenting with planning techniques in the horticultural sphere. In this talk a short outline will be given of the way in which work planning has been carried out on a Dutch nursery holding. Attention will be paid to the experiences and the results.
