The company “Société Plastique Innovation Distribution” (S.P.I.D), located in France, is actually recognized, by its customers, as the specialist in long life propagation trays. Its skilled experience, built over the past two decades, thanks to the advices of the most technical plant raisers, has contributed to develop a full range of sustainable cultivation containers.
The injection molded trays from SPID, are in fact, premium quality made, and designed to efficiently answer to the main constraints of the plants producers. In a global vision of reusability, SPID develops multi-cells tray that are:
- mechanized (at the sowing stage as well as the transplanting stage),
- Washable (made of polypropylene the trays can be disinfected, and perfectly cleaned),
- durable for more than 15 years (by reusing the trays on each production cycle, the accumulated costs saving after few years, enables plant raisers to invest in a better mechanization…).
Moreover, SPID trays are designed to insure a good roots development (no roots twizzling), a homogeneous plant growth, and a perfect crop removal. The cell shape and generally the cell characteristics are, according to SPID, a sinequanone condition to get healthy and strong young plants.
Nowadays, the French company benefits of a sufficient number of plugs trays to cover the plant nurseries needs, anywhere around the world, and tries to advise as possible on specific or polyvalent references, depending of the customer request.
Nonetheless, SPID has recently launched two new references: the EURO BOX and the EURO 384 cells tray, which present the advantages of the last mold generation. The EURO BOX, with its pyramidal bottom part, better apportions the water on the surface, avoids possible moisture, and facilitates the growth of homogeneous plants. The EURO 384 cavities tray, initially designed for the cultivation of processing tomatoes, has a good ratio density/quality, and can be used with normal peat, compressed peat, or plugs.
