Details & Features

Our low to mid-cell count vegetable propagation tray designed specifically for Latin America.

This stacking tray is manufactured in Brazil to reduce transport costs and at only 31cc volume cells, it is especially suited to Latin America where lower cell volumes are preferred due to high soil costs.

Because of the lower volume combined with the shallower depth, plants also pull very easily from this tray.

Because of the tough construction, plants will continue to pull well year after year.

Tray is tough and rigid and is designed to sit on ‘T’ trail benching.

The Proptek 162 is designed with both manual labor and automation in mind: cells and corners are re-enforced for ease of carrying and benching.

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.

We have been using Proptek propagation trays for decades now and the plant quality is always second to none. The design helps us produce as many plants per foot as physically possible whilst keeping the quality high, which something that is important to us as we are ourselves strive to produce the best we can. John and the team aren’t just churning out plastic trays – they live and breathe horticulture and have done for years now, so you know you are getting what’s best for the plants. What’s best for the plants is best for us.

In my opinion, Proptek’s 162 injection molded tray is the best reusable watermelon transplant tray on the market.

Zoë Bradbury | Valley Flora Farm, OR, United States

Our 6-acre vegetable farm is committed to generating as much production with as little waste as possible. We have never been satisfied with the flimsy plastic propagation trays that dominate the nursery industry, because of the garbage they create, the difficulty of moving trays in the greenhouse, the challenge of removing plugs, and the overall lower quality starts they produce.

We were thrilled to discover Proptek trays last year and now use the 144s for nearly all of our vegetable start production. The smooth, tapered plug design makes transplanting fast and easy, and the quality of our plants has been excellent.

Best of all, they are extremely durable. I fully expect we’ll still be using the same trays in a decade, and beyond. The folks at Proptek worked with us to fulfill a group order for a handful of organic farmers in the Pacific Northwest and every single farm has been impressed by these trays so far. Thank you Proptek for designing a quality product that meets our farm’s production needs and will stand the test of time.
