The Preforma plant plug system is probably today’s most flexible growing system available.
You, the grower, chooses tray and substrate out of the wide range of Preforma choices available; making the ‘custom tray-custom substrate’ combination a perfect fit for your operation.
Manufactured from the highest quality substrates, held together with a unique binding agent, the Preforma plant plug is suitable to work in any highly automated greenhouse environment, without exception.
Preforma Plant Plugs have become an important part of the greenhouse, vegetable, nursery, and forestry propagation industry all over the world.
The ultimate in flexibility
Preforma plant plugs are available in almost every existing tray format used in the horticultural industry making it a ‘Tailor-made plant plug’ system for every propagator. Most trays, no matter what shape or size, can be filled with one of Preforma’s wide range of media, from peat substrates to coconut fibre, perlite or other mixes.
All Preforma media are held together with a unique binding agent creating a product guaranteed to hold the plug together during handling and transplanting. Additional seeding dibbles or cutting holes can be provided as required by the customer. In short; you decide on the tray, you decide on the media, seeding dibble or cutting hole, making Preforma the ultimate choice when it comes to flexibility.
Plug in Plug
As a specialty, Preforma plant plugs can be provided with a transplanting hole to accommodate a smaller second plant plug, eliminating transplant shock and root damage.
The plug basically keeps growing without interruption and will be ready for final transplant faster.
Increase your returns
The Preforma system is designed to increase returns as processing and transplanting of the plugs is made faster and easier. The binder also secures the media staying together, translating in no root damage, zero transplant shock, resulting in a faster growing and healthier crop.
Losses are kept to a minimum and many users of Preforma reported an overall speeding up of all processes in the nursery.
As one USA nursery Preforma user said: “Preforma gives us unmatched consistency in the success and quality of our finished liners over a broad spectrum of plant species.
Combine this with the labor savings of not having to fill plug trays, no cleanup, and no mechanical popping of plugs – more than pays for the product”.
