Propagation is the essence of the nursery industry for without this important 1st phase of all plant production, there would not be an industry. Whether from seed, cutting division or tissue culture, every plant has specific needs for this process to occur in an efficient manner. Some segments of the industry have been fortunate to be able to embrace mechanization, by way of Transplanter, mainly by way of plug production of seed derived species. Vegetative propagation, due to the variable nature of this process, has taken longer to move to Transplanter technology. This needn’t be the case, with improved propagation systems now available after being proven in Europe and America for many years.
PropTec™, a company born from the experiences gained through the use of the various systems in Highsun’s production processes, was formed to bring those systems to the Australian market. PropTec™ specializes in the supply of propagation supplies and systems used in young plant production through to transplant stage. Central to this is the Jiffy-7C, a treated coir product wrapped in biodegradable net, which conforms to RHP standard, a testing standard for all media used in horticulture in Europe. This ensures that EC, structure and impurities meet the guidelines established to ensure success with the use of standard growing principles.
