Seed provided by the customer is sown into PlantTape, which is a blend of peat, coco, and vermiculite between two layers of biodegradable paper.
Dry PlantTape trays arrive ready for nursery propagation. PlantTape trays can be germinated immediately or stored for the desired planting schedule.
Designed to bridge the gap between automation and speed, PlantTape offers growers a transplanting system unmatched in capability, labor reduction, and ease of use.
PlantTape is an automated transplanting solution for tomato growers facing significant labor demands. PlantTape can provide growers the ability to transplant young vigorous plants at large scale with minimal labor. Nursery production is exponentially increased due to the plant density in the tray and short residency times compared to conventional transplants. PlantTape planting modules allow for precision spacing and variable depth control, which improves plant establishment while increasing uniformity. The extensions allow tomato growers to plant 5+ acres per hour with only 2-3 people, including the tractor driver.
PlantTape has proven itself as a worldwide leader in automated transplant production. Growers utilize the many benefits of the PlantTape system by enhancing plant uniformity, increasing nursery production, reducing labor, and improving transplanting efficiencies in the field.
PlantTape provides vegetable growers with an ideal environment for seed germination and the ability to quickly establish a viable transplant. Nursery production is exponentially increased due to the plant density (840 plants/tray) and short residency times (15-30 days) compared to conventional transplants. PlantTape planting modules allow for precision plant spacing and variable depth control, which compliments many other automated systems evolving in agriculture (i.e. robotic weeders and harvesters).
PlantTape is an automated transplanting solution designed to eliminate many of the challenges associated with transplant production. PlantTape provides growers the ability to transplant young vigorous plants on a large scale with minimal labor. Designed as a turn-key system, PlantTape will maximize nursey space and remove the need for bulky sowing equipment. Seed provided by the customer is placed into the biodegradable PlantTape and returned ready for propagation. Growers can germinate the dry PlantTape trays immediately or the trays can be stored for a later planting. Growers can become their own nursery with little infrastructure and control the entire growing process in-house. PlantTape transplants can be planted at any stage of growth allowing for flexibility in the planting schedule and to mitigate the impact of adverse weather.
Given the unique spacing of hemp, extensions can be installed on PlantTape machines to increase planting capacities without the increase in labor. The extensions allow hemp growers to plant 5+ acres per hour with only 2-3 people, including the tractor driver.
In 2019, PlantTape had success around the country in both autoflower and full-season varieties of hemp.
