Do you want to maximise

transplant success rates?

Then stop transplanting!!

 

Every time you or your workers touch one of your plants, you reduce the potential for that plant to thrive (or even survive).

And as for transplanting your seedlings from the nursery to the field - can you imagine the trauma (known as "transplant shock") that causes the young plant?

 

See some of the research here: http://tinyurl.com/TransplantShockResearch

 

Taken out of a protected, sheltered environment, cared for from a seedling, embedded in nice soft soil that's full of nutrients, where it's still tender roots can grow easily ..

.. then to be ripped from that nurturing environment, have it's roots exposed to the air for God knows how long, then shoved carelessly (or even carefully) into broken but still hard soil, under the blazing sun.

Having to fight for life with limited water and an uncertain nutrient supply.

Why would you do that? Does that sound like a recipe for success to you?

It sure doesn't to me.

Options

"OK" you say, "fine, but what choice do I have? I have to grow from seed in the nursery, and then I have to move the plants to the field - so how?"

Well, you could grow them under cover in larger greenhouses - but that's expensive to do on a large scale.

You could grow them in poly bags and just remove the poly bag when you transplant into the soil - better but tearing open the poly bag for the final move can damage roots as well (not to mention the environmental harm from the waste poly bags and the cost of disposal).

Or ....

You could use what we like to call Natures Plant Womb - an environment you can control with your preferred soil mix, the exact amount of water needed for optimum growth and plant healthiness - and you can plant the whole thing in the soil when it's transplant time.

The tender roots are never exposed and you can "dose" the young plant with extra nutrients before it goes in the field for a strength boost to face the external environment.

Plus you can plant the whole thing in the soil, where it will protect the young plant in it's early days outdoors, can act as a slow release fertilizer - and will breakdown into a mini-compost heap, adding organic biomass to your soil.

Nature's Plant Womb

So what is this "Plant Womb"?

Well, some call them cocopots - planting pots made from coconut fibre and natural latex.

 

Cocopots

These amazing natural material objects are just what any vegetable farmer needs (organic or not) because they solve your "transplant shock" damage to your valuable crop.

Imagine how much it costs you, every time a plant fails to yield like it should - or worse, dies completely!

Your cost of care is about the same, whether the plant lives or dies - but your revenue and profit certainly aren't.

For just a few cents a plant, doesn't it make sense to invest in a lot of crop "insurance"?
