In most cases, the transplanting phase of the seedlings takes place starting from a sowing-box, ie a container that creates a protected environment for seed germination. This is why, subsequently, we feel the need to have an accurate and fast equipment to make sure that the transplant in open field or even in greenhouses takes place effectively and quickly, without causing "shock" to the seedling that slow down its growth. The first precaution that we must have in this case is precisely that of choosing the right time for transplanting: depending on the type and characteristics of the seedling, it is necessary to evaluate the external temperature (warm, cold or temperate environment) and the period of the year in which to operate (usually summer or spring / autumn). The blooming growth of the seedling will depend on its adaptation to the type of soil in which it will be inserted during the transplanting phase. The transplanter with seedling-trays will also have to be meticulous and mostly automated, avoiding dead times and lightening the already heavy workload of the operator.
Ferrari Costruzioni Meccaniche designs transplanters with seedling-trays with a high level of innovation, which adapt to the characteristics of the seedling, making the delicate transplanting phase safer and more efficient. Within the catalogue there are 6 different models of transplanters with seedling-trays:
