NEW for 2018! Proptek 162 Cell Vegetable Tray Re-Design

Proptek are committed to continuous improvement and product development, and we are pleased to announce that our popular super-versatile vegetable propagation tray has had an overhaul and is now even better.

The tray has been re-designed from the ground up to create an even tougher design that is easy to carry, compatible with automation equipment and easy to carry. The cells now feature a double root-training rib for an even better root ball, which means incredibly good quality plants that are easy to pull.

As was the case with our previous version, this tray replaces both 162 cavity plastic trays and 128 cell Styrofoam trays. The cell volume is almost identical to the 128 cell Styrofoam tray but with 26% more cells, meaning more plants per square foot. Even though there are 162 cells in the same space as 128, due to the strong nature of injection molded plastic the cell walls can be much thinner, meaning the plant spacing i.e. center to center spacing is only decreased by 8.6%. Plant quality is very similar between the higher density tray and the 128 Styrofoam tray and often the difference is very hard to see.
