Advantages Of Seedling Trays In Kenya

Seedling trays and planting media offer the following benefits compared to traditional nurseries:

  • 99%-100% of the seedlings are transplanted. This is because the soiless media- coco peat in the seedling tray is sanitised and has no pests nor diseases. Again, transplanting losses are insignificant because the seedlings re transplanted while this media is still attached to the root zone. This prevents the tender roots from exposure, or damage

 

The roots of a tree seedling from a seedling tray with the roots covered by the planting media, and the bare roots of another seedling grown directly in a traditional soil nursery

  • every seedling is accounted for by knowing the cells number  (tray cell number x number of tray s= no of seedlings)
  • pest and disease management is easy. This is because the seedlings or propagates are in a greenhouse, shade house or any other enclosed location
  • high germination rate
  • uniformity of growth

Other Advantages

  • seedlings are traken from the tray for field planting with no shock. This is because the growing media covers their tender roots. Transplanting shock is always as a result of leaving the growing roots exposed when relocating the seedling
  • early crop maturity. This is because the seedlings growth did not slowed down from the movement shock. Transplanting shock in vegetable crops can cause a 2 to 3 week delay in harvesting
  • light and highly portable. Our planting trays are light weight and easy to move from one location to another

PLANTING MEDIA

Soils that have been used for crop production over many years harbor pests and diseases that easily attack tender seedlings. The use of sanitized seedling trays and planting media shield your crop at this highly susceptible stage from this pestilence.
Our coco peat provides the requisite nutrients to start off the plants immediately after germination. All that is required during the seedlings time in the tray is water and light

How Long Do You Leave Seedlings In A Seedling Tray?

This depends on the length of seedling maturity which differs from crop to crop. For instance, tomato, cabbage, capsicums take 3-4 weeks to transplant, while onion takes 8 weeks

Which Seedling Tray Is Best?

The choice of seedling tray depends on;

  1. Crop size. Tree crops require larger cells than say onion seedlings
  2. Desired transplanting size. The bigger the seedling, the larger the tray
  3. Choice of activity. Seedling trays to rear silk worms have larger cells than say seedling trays for tomato. This is because silk worms are larger, thus need more space, while tomato seeds and seedlings are tiny enough to grow in a much smaller cell
