- PlantTape reduces vegetable transplanting labor requirements by 80 percent when compared to other transplanting systems that require a 15-person crew, while enhancing transplanting productivity and crop production.
- PlantTape’s automatic vegetable transplanter provides for extremely fine plant-to-plant and line-to-line spacing control.
Rothert Farms uses the PlantTape automated transplanting system
In 2017, in their farm in Florida, Rothert Farms started using the PlantTape system for transplanting iceberg lettuce.
According to the owner, Jake Rothert, they used to deal with high labor costs and inconsistent lettuce stands problems.
However, he overcame these challenges when they implemented PlantTape. With the help of the PlantTape team and their vegetable planter, everything went well. The farm is now benefiting from the results such as lower labor costs, higher greenhouse throughput, lower seed costs, and increased crop yield.
Rothert Farms is looking to add more commodities to be transplanted with PlantTape.
