Automated transplanting system to host open house

After a year of successful trials, automated transplanting system, PlantTape, is hosting an open house that the company says will highlight the system’s success in transplanting tomatoes. The event will be held in Five Points, CA, on April 10th from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM.

Experts from PlantTape are looking forward to sharing what they have learned from the past year of trials and discussing how the tomato industry can adopt the innovative planting technology into their growing operations. The open house will allow visitors to evaluate the transplanting machine while it works to plant a 20 acre tomato trial alongside another 20 acres previously planted for evaluation. A barbecue lunch will be included for event attendees.

“After four years and 25,000 acres of development with the PlantTape system, we are excited to showcase what we have learned and how we can apply the automated technology to the tomato industry,” stated Brian Antle, President of PlantTape. “With the availability of labor declining and hourly costs increasing, we must look to turn key automation solutions, such as PlantTape.”

The PlantTape system is currently being used for the commercial planting of a variety of crops in the United States and Europe; including Tanimura & Antle’s growing operations. According to the company, the advanced technology, which they say is adaptable to most crops, plants more in less time with less labor and fewer inputs than traditional transplanting, and achieves stronger, more uniform stands.
