X-tray® and Quality Plugs
The X-tray is made of highly polished polypropylene; this helps overcome a major problem facing some growers. Easy ejection takes the difficulty out of transplanting the plugs so that growers are no longer confronted with the problems associated with damaging the plugs during extraction.
The plugs within the trays are made from special blends of media which encourage stronger growth and a better root system. As the roots are not damaged during transplanting, they become established much faster than if they had been raised in ordinary trays. Also, due to the design of the tray legs, the roots remain inside the plug; this means they have an excellent root system which will result in finished products of high quality.
When developing the X-tray, we worked very closely with our partners to ensure that the trays would perform well on any kind of machinery. We now know that the consistency in the size and shape of the X-tray makes it easy to set up the machines so that they will run for very long periods without any problems. The design of the X-tray makes it easy for the machines to extract the plugs. As a result, this product has improved the entire transplanting process.
