The Latest Innovation in Fruit and Landscape Tree & Shrub Propagation Technology – 008GLOBAL Air Tray®

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.

Holds 8 x 100mm (3.9”) diameter Ellepots. The optimum Ellepot height for this container is 165mm (6.5”), but the tray’s design supports taller Ellepots as well. Available with an optional sleeve for use with a 229mm (9”) deep Ellepot.
Raised foot at base of tray keeps the Ellepots off the ground when trays placed on the floor, thus eliminating the need for an expensive benching system.

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.
