  • Want tray for planting half a kg onion seeds.
    How many trays do I need? Planting media?

    Onesmus Mutinda
    • Dear Onesmus,

      Half a kg of onion seed has 50,000 seeds. Using the 288 cell, you require 174 trays @ Kes 120 apiece. You’ll use coco peat as planting media at a rate of 1kg for every 12 trays, so 15 kgs of coco peat @ Kes 70/kg.
      Where are you located and when do you need these products?

      Best regards,

      Customer Service
