Details & Features

With a cell volume of 13cc, specially selected cell wall angle and Proptek’s root training and air pruning technology, plants are as strong and healthy and pull easily time and time again.

The injection molded construction also lends itself to other features, such as root training ribs and larger cell drainage hole. This means roots are better quality, circle less and can’t embed themselves into the cell wall – which all means a much easier plant to pull. So easy in fact, that you can often pull a little earlier and damage the plant less than if it was at the usual time in a thermoformed or Styrofoam tray.

The heavy duty design remains lightweight, but has a long extended working life – usually up to 10 years with multiple cycles per year.

Trays can be steam sterilised with no negative effects on life of tray or plant pulling.

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.

Proptek’s 234 Vegetable tray produces exceptional results – they are so durable and have served us very well for many years now. Our pepper plants grow quick and strong with excellent roots and pull from the cells real easy too. All in all – it’s a great tray that makes our lives here at King City Nursery smooth and efficient.

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