Details & Features

This tray is well suited to any crop needing a deeper cell such as tea, coffee, bananas, sugar cane and tree liners.

The tray is very durable and lends itself to de-stacking and other automated methods very well. Because of the durable nature of injection molded plastic the tray should last for many many seasons. This ensures a much higher return on investment over more disposable options such as Styrofoam or flimsy thermoformed plastic.

The 162 features root training ribs in the cells to direct roots down and stop them from circling. This means better quality plants that will be more stable and better equipped to quickly take up water and nutrients once planted out.

The cells feature a large draining hole to allow quick drainage to prevent the roots sitting waterlogged.

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.

The Tall Pot is a system, not just a container. We designed our 4 acres of facility around the pot and tray and saved thousands of dollars on benching because we only needed rails. The 8 cell tray naturally saves labor by reducing repetitive walking and is conducive to mechanized pot filling and conveyors.

On top of that, the injection molded pots and frames are durable and long lasting. We steam sterilize them and expect at least a 6 year life. The best feature is the root pruning and root architecture caused by the pot. There is absolutely no circling of roots and the mass of roots in the pot is amazing.

Our citrus trees take off and come into production sooner than any other pot used in citrus. Choosing this container was the best decision we ever made.

I have used the 8 deep pot in frames since 2010 when I had the opportunity to closely participate in its design. The creation of this pot in frame marks a pivoting moment in the conception of modern professional citrus nurseries around the world. Technically speaking the pots are ideal for root development with adequate depth associated with internal ridges which direct the roots down and windows that cause air pruning enabling even more root mass to develop. The frame holding 8 pots make it an easy transition to automation and conveyance which are key features in any professional nursery in the new era of high labour cost. In my point of view, the question of which container to use in a professional citrus nursery has been answered by Proptek and its 8 cell deep pot in frame.

I think they [Proptek’s propogation containers] are one of the best root pruning pots out there.  For one thing they are in a 10×20″ format which allows us to be able to maximize our bench space, where other types of air pruning pots leave a lot of open bench space.

I also like the way the plant is easily pulled from the pot and then easily put it back into the pot when checking the roots.  I like the injection mold type of pot instead of cheaper thermoformed pots.  They last much longer and are definitely worth the price point.  I think these pots should be more widely used in the industry, therefore making better roots on plants for the whole industry.
