TS-256 Seedling Tray

Made from HDPE (High Density Polyethene) virgin resin with UV protection, the TS-256 cell seedling tray is the same as the 256F cellular tray for forestry but is specific to vegetable seedling production. The tray enables the nursery to automate tray-handling processes and produce more seedlings per square metre - eliminating demands upon capital reserves for nursery expansion.

The 256 cell tray is ideal for producing several high volume process crops - especially tomatoes for tomato paste production. Other vegetables regularly grown in the TS-256 trays are herbs, onion, brassicas and celery.

The square tray shapes makes it ideal for growing vegetable seedlings that are to be planted with semi-automatic machines such as the SK300 or RT20 Wire Finger Planter and the HD 256 Automatic Planting Machines that can be customised for varying seedling types and terrain.

The cell form of the TS-256 tray avoids root curl and encourages leader roots to extend quickly into surrounding soil. There is less risk of growth pause when transplanting these small seedlings.

For added efficiency, we recommend this seedling tray is used in combination with Transplant Systems' growing systems and planted with Sfoggia Transplanters.
