The SAMAC Nursery Accreditation Scheme has aligned itself with the Seedling Growers’ Association of South Africa (SGASA). SGASA’s Certification Scheme aims to
- promote good nursery practices,
- ensure legislative requirements are met and
- recognise nurseries that are excelling in our industry.
SAMAC recommends buying from SGASA-accredited nurseries, but recognises that all nurseries cannot be audited at once and some first-audits are scheduled for the end of 2018 only. SAMAC does not accept any responsibility for nursery trees and it is the responsibility of the grower/purchaser to inspect the trees prior to delivery.
In summary, SAMAC encourages members to buy from SGASA-accredited nurseries.
