The present study was conducted in Udaipur districts during 2005–2006 to assess the socio-economic status of plant nursery business. A total of 20 private plant nurseries was selected for the study. The study revealed that 50% of the nursery owners had primary level of education and 60% owners performed their business on their own land. More than 55% owners had upto 5 years of experience in nursery business. This business has vast potentials of generating employment and income of the owners. The yearly net returns per ha nursery was Rs. 145226.5. The rate of returns over full-cost was found to be 1.44. Non-availability of improved seeds/seedlings was the main constraint in nurseries.
