T.O. Plastics has developed the POPagation Station Plug Popper that removes fully rooted plugs from plug trays to minimize damage when transplanting. The patent-pending equipment has been designed to meet the manual automation needs of growers.
The POPagation Station Plug Popper is a two-piece system featuring a spring-actuated stabilizer frame and baseboard. The base board is custom-built with hardened steel pegs to fit any plug tray and can function as a dibble board for seeding. The portable transplanting equipment requires less force than other plug poppers on the market and can easily go from greenhouse to field.
“We are thrilled to introduce the POPagation Station Plug Popper to the horticulture market,” says Jared Rusch, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at T.O Plastics. “Through dedicated research and development, our team has created a system that we believe will improve the transplanting process. We are confident that the POPagation Station will greatly assist growers with labor and time savings.”
