We manufacture planting trays in Kenya with UV-treated PVC plastic material. These seed trays have cell sizes as; 28, 50, 66, 160, 200, 204, and 288. Our seedling trays for sale haves a perforation at the bottom of each cell to allow for water drainage and root aeration. The choice of the propagtion tray depends on the  seed size, and final size of the seedlings at transplanting stage. The larger they are, then the choice will be for trays with larger cells. The lessor the cell sizes on a tray, the more they are.

iv. How do you use planting trays?

In an era when farmers have graduated to high-value hybrid vegetable seeds;

  • planting trays make it possible to account for each seedling, the reason that every seed is placed manually one by one
  • this makes it easy to count actual germination and seedling survivals
  • the seedlings have less pest and disease infestation because the trays are used with sanitized growing media
  • at transplanting, the growing media covers the root system which prevents transplanting shock in the field or greenhouse
  • transplanting shock slows down crop growth and delays maturity

When the crop has been hardened enough to withstand open field or greenhouse conditions

viii. What can I use instead of seedling trays?

Agrower will propagate the seedling by preparing a soil nursery, which is the traditional way. The challenge with this method is the exposure of seedlings to soil borne pests and diseases. This lowers the germiation and seedling survival rate. Another alternative is to have propagation plastic bags

      1. 150 cell trays x 34 units @ Kes 120= Kes 4,080
      2. 200 cell trays x 25 units @ Kes 120= Kes 3,000
