Plug Plant Project
Conclusion: The majority of growers using plugs, found them to be a more convenient type of plant to work with. The efficicieny of tray plant production can still be improved. Greenhouse growers are only averaging an 86% stand per tray. Cost effectivness would improve greatly with improved tray plant recovery. Plug planters have a potential to reduce labour requirements. Further commercial testing will have to be conducted. Plug plant production will probably increase in 1988.
