Why should I opt for SPID ?

SPID trays are mainly made of virgin polypropylene or partial recycled material, anti-UV, and coloring. The quality of our raw material gives SPID products a very good duration life (more than 15 years). Furthermore, SPID designs its models, taking into account agronomic constraints (root development), mechanical constraints (sowing, transplanting, loading, etc.), but also logistical constraints (standard, washing, etc.).

How to choose a propagation tray?

The choice of a tray is done according to the young plant variety and the desired plant density. We have many different types of propagation trays, some of them are multi-purpose, while others are more specific. We design our seedling trays to meet the plants’ agronomical needs: optimization of the germination, and a better plant recovery, developpment, and transplanting. The cell shape and the peat volume are key criteria for obtaining optimum root development and avoiding root circling, etc.

To summarize, SPID trays are :

For which use?

The majority of our Euro size seedling trays (60x40cm) are used for growing vegetable young plants, while Danish size cell trays (54x30cm) are generally used in the horticultural industry (flowers). This is mainly explained by the production and logistics constraints of each area.
Thus, Euro propagation trays are suitable for the vegetable young plant market, due to the fact that they are more suitable for sowing and transplanting machines, but also for logistics on pallets (Euro).
Whereas the Danish trays with legs are particularly suitable for horticultural market and ornamentals, transplanting into pots, and also for deliveries on Danish rolls. Their legs also allow good air pruning of the plant, preventing the roots from running.

How to manage deliveries?

SPID favors sustainable solutions rather than disposable solutions, ecology than waste, reusability than single use. Our Seedling plates represent a very suitable and effective tool for producing young plants.
However, efficient and economical logistics solutions are necessary to deliver the plants, in order to respect the following cycle: production, delivery, washing, production… And this is why SPID offers crates, Tray Transporters and growing supports.
Tray Logistics on carry tray , Tray Transporter, or in crates, is recommended for all deliveries, except for those very far away which can be managed in an insert.

The durability of our products is an advantage, compared to thermoformed or polystyrene trays, because the savings made (after X production cycles) allow you to quickly amortize your production tool and develop your business.
