Stairway Pot L (LONG)

Patent Number: US D902,777 S

Air pruning, nursery pot. Innovatively designed windows and the shape of the pot, guide the root systems for excellent root development. Designed with optimum footprint to maximize tree numbers per square foot.

The Stairway pot and 8 cell tray reduces labor/handling and fits existing automation systems.

The volume is 2.8 liters.

Stairway IRRIGATION L (LONG)

Patent Number: US D902,777 S

Country plastics system represents a new era in irrigation of containerized nursery trees. The set-up is installed only once and remains in place. This enables the trees to be moved in and out of their positions faster and easier, all the while knowing that precise individual irrigation to every tree is guaranteed.

This system solves a significant obstacle in the adoption of moving tables for nursery tree production. It is more efficient to move the trees on and off of the tables without having to be concerned with the drip irrigation spaghettis.

 An irrigation system that delivers water precisely and individually to each tree in the 8 Cell J Tray. No more drippers.

Trees can be removed from the tray, worked on and returned easily without affecting the irrigation set up. Less labor, easier management of trees.

OUR BIODEGRADABLE NURSERY PRODUCTS

GO GREEN WITH OUR ECO FRIENDLY SOLUTIONS

BIODEGRADABLE – j CLIPS

Utilizing small plastic clips to assist in holding plant parts in specific positions is common in nursery production. A classic example is the bending of citrus rootstock after budding to assist with bud development. Collecting the clips once they’re no longer necessary for the rootstock involves costly labor and the loss of clips, especially in large operations with hundreds of thousands of trees. The biodegradable clips are a single use tool that can serve its purpose, then can be discarded easily along with all other plant clippings. They can be effortlessly cut with clippers and left to decompose in the pots or be tossed onto the floor and swept up with clippings to start their biodegradation process.

Biodegradable, rigid material, Budding Clip that is durable above ground, but when placed in a compostable environment, will degrade within weeks. Environmentally friendly!

Clips can be trimmed and left in pots for biodegradation, or placed in compost.

“I have been working with Jay at Country Plastics to procure all the pots, trays, irrigation and compostable clips for my citrus nursery. They are very reliable and are excellent as what they do. All my interaction with them are positive, from Jay, all the way to the guys on the floor. Always with a smile, good attitude and ready to help. I really like working with them and they are ready for the challenge. Bring an idea, Jay will gladly discuss it with you, find a way to design it, produce it and you’ll be holding your “idea” in your hands before you know it!”

“At Four Winds Growers we use a specially designed 5″x5″x12″ container made by Country Plastics.This pot was strategically created for optimal production spacing in the nursery and efficient shipping. Equipped with air pruning technology, the container promotes robust root systems, while its increased depth facilitates taller root development, enhancing the overall vitality of the tree. This design not only guarantees us a top-notch tree quality but also ensures cost-effective shipping for our customers. We have trialed several versions of this pot design and the one from County Plastics is hands down the best! Country Plastics even designed a custom tray that we can use for shipping which not only maximizes the number of units we can fit on a pallet, but is also convenient for retail customers to handle as well. We could not be happier!”
