    Since this nursery was expanded to an extent of 128 acres in the Divisional Secretary’s Division of Bulathsinhala in Kalutara District by the Rubber Control Department in year 1953, Egaloya Nursery was renowned as the largest Bud wood rubber nursery then in Asia. However, since this nursery was handed over to an individual in the past regime, only 43 acres remain at present. This extent of land is not at all sufficient to produce the present plant requirement of the Department. Therefore, necessary arrangements are being made to increase the extent of land of the nursery.
