Details & Features

New for 2022, this 8 cell Air Tray holds 8 individual 100mm diameter Ellepots, and complements the other Air Trays that Proptek has introduced over the last couple of years. This propagation container has been designed to provide a solution for many types of fruit tree propagation, and is ideally suited to replace the 1 Gallon Pot for landscape tree and woody ornamental propagation. Using Ellepots in this long lasting Air Tray will also help to vastly reduce plastic waste. And because the containers nest so well, this really helps to keep global shipping costs to a minimum.

One of the key concepts with the Ellepot/Proptek system is how compatible with automation it is. Serious time and money efficiency savings can be made throughout the whole growing process, right from filling, to sorting & grading, and to shipping out of the door.

The optimum height Ellepot for this container is 165 mm (6.5”), although Ellepots taller than this can be used if required.

The Ellepot supports the growing media and holds it together while the roots are growing, meaning they can be moved or transplanted far sooner than in traditional systems. The Ellepot inserts are held in such a way that also allows enough air movement for great aeration and drainage and incredible ‘air pruning’ of the root system. The tray also keeps the plants raised off the ground away from standing water to allow air to better flow around the base to help air pruning. This also prevents the plants from sitting in water, thereby reducing water logging and disease.

Once the plants are grown to the desired size, the Ellepot insert can be removed, packaged and sent to the field or customer without any plastic leaving the nursery, helping to ensure containers never go missing. This also helps with disease management, as you aren’t bringing any contaminated containers back to the nursery.

Shipping Statistics

Please Note…

1 Full truck loads can fit more trays per pallet as a dedicated full size 53ft lorry is used for delivery. For partial truck loads, we cannot guarantee the height of the lorry, so pallets must fit into all commercial freight vehicles. If arranging your own transport, please advise us at the earliest opportunity on the internal height of your vehicle.

2 Trays are stacked loose or partly loose to get the maximum number of trays per container. This will result in lower unit shipping cost but also more labor to unload

All statistics and measurements may vary so please check before purchasing, if critical, or ask for sample.
