"New tray with long legs offers strawberry growers the ideal plant height"

There’s a constantly growing demand for higher propagation trays for strawberry plants. High strawberry trays imply many advantages. Tray fields don’t always have a uniform surface, and high plant trays mean that the strawberry plants’ roots don’t touch the ground. Some distance between the roots and the ground also implies better hygiene and quality because water splashing up from the ground can’t reach the roots.

For this reason Beekenkamp added two high strawberry trays to its range in the past years: the 10-hole high tray 7317 and the 18-hole high tray 7319. This year they are expanding this series with yet another tray: the +Tray 16 minitray with long legs.

Italian customer Società Agricola Vivai Mazzoni started using this higher +Tray 16 strawberry tray this season because it enables them to ensure a better microclimate for their plants.

Dr Leis, production manager at Vivai Mazzoni: “The drier conditions in this tray result in plants with stronger, whiter root balls”.

Higher version of the 16-hole strawberry minitray
The +Tray 16 high minitray type 7319 is a higher version of the existing +Tray 16 minitray type 7308. This higher minitray comes with two different leg lengths – 50 mm and 70 mm. The tray’s plant cups have a volume of 135 cc.

This strawberry minitray is made of sustainably recycled PP. It can be subjected to steam treatment and be used for many years.
