Abstract

An opportunity exists for Ontario greenhouse growers to export tray-grown plug plants to other parts of the province, and to Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. Markets could also be available in Quebec and the Maritimes, particularly for cole crops to be planted later in the season. The purpose of this report is to suggest a plug plant transportation system and evaluation of such a system.
