"La agricultura y la horticultura son ciencias vitales, ya que satisfacen las necesidades básicas de alimentación de los seres humanos. Los alimentos cualitativos y cuantitativos se pueden producir básicamente a partir de plantas sanas que, a su vez, se producen solo cuando sus plántulas/retoños son vigorosos y saludables. El vivero es, por tanto, la necesidad básica de la horticultura." -- Resource Book on Horticulture Nursery Management
