Nut Trees

Challenges facing growers

Nut trees are usually propagated from cuttings, though some are grown from seed. Traditionally, young plants were planted in local soil or growing media in plastic bags. However, growers experienced several obstacles to achieving profits. These included fluctuating EC and pH levels, labor intensity, and transport costs. In addition, the use of plastic bags is becoming an issue in many countries.

Innovative solutions

With the help of innovation, these growers now have a bright future. We have developed the Jiffy 7C Pellet specially for propagation from cuttings. The 60 x 120 mm PLA pellet means mortality rates for the plants has dropped to close to 0%.

Faster turnaround

With Jiffy Pellets, you can plant the entire pellet containing the young plant. This eliminates transplant shock. Transportation is much more compact and the pellet holds enough water for the journey. At the same time, the well-developed and air-pruned roots help good field establishment. Thanks to faster rooting, turnaround improves – and revenues along with it.
