Open days: Nov. 6-8th, 's-Gravendeel, The Netherlands

Visser introduces new fully automatic transplanter, V-tray system

Since 1967 Visser has been developing new products to improve and innovate efficiency in the greenhouse. Developing together with her customers has helped to become a reliable partner in company solutions. Last few years Visser has worked together with leading growers in the development in cutting edge technologies for the production of both young plants and pot plants.

Young Plants

Visser introduces the new 'Snap System'. This system can transplant all cuttings fully automatic. The cuttings are being placed in special biodegradable strips, immediately after harvesting. This strip will be shipped to the rooting stations. To transplant the cuttings at your rooting station, each cell is being cut off in the new PC22-Transplanter and directly planted into the pot. Plants are being approached from underneath by the cutting device. Therefore leafy, delicate or unrooted product can easily be processed without damaging. As easy as that!

The new V-Tray system will be introduced during the Open Days as well. This is system is a new and different 'strip system'. Because of the design and because a separate strip can be processed, plant material can be approached from the side walls of the plug. The contact with the plant is therefore very minimal, this guarantees optimal preservation of your young plant material. Plants that damage easily, like begonia's can be easily transplanted now. Plants that have a weak rooting system or have leafy foliage can also be transplanted easily in the system. Separate strips can be fed into the machine and the special designed gripper processes each strip of plants separately. Therefore different plants can be fed in the machine simultaneously and mixed trays and hanging baskets can be produced automatically now. Click here to learn more about V-tray.

Pot Plants

Together with Costa Farms in the USA, Visser developed a new concept for pot plants ‘Water wick’. Water wick was actually inspired by our ‘grandmothers’ generation, who used to put a small wick in their house plants, which would wick up water from a small plate under the pot. In this concept the placing of the wick is finally being automated! The wick leads to a water reservoir in the special over pot. This concept has been launched in the USA recently and is coming to Europe now as well! Read more about Waterwick.
