 PVG 100% Filled Plug Trays
What are 100% filled plug trays?
They are plug trays that are 100% full of healthy seedlings ready for the transplanter. The trays are taken at an early stage of development and evaluated for fullness of stand and the quality of seedlings by sophisticated computer imaging equipment. Poor quality seedlings are replaced and trays are returned to the bench to finish growing to their maximum potential.
