Our newest automated technology is the AutoPlanter. The AutoPlanter originated from UK technology and was initially designed for use in cole crop transplanting operation. However, we saw the potential for its use with other crops. After design modifications by Growers Transplanting, the AutoPlanter is now an effective, efficient alternative for transplanting both processed tomatoes and cole crops. The AutoPlanter travels 2 ½ to 3 ½ miles per hour, planting up to 2 acres per hour.
Our AutoPlanter is the first of its kind in the United States. We have successfully run the AutoPlanter in conjunction with processed tomatoes and cauliflower. Our expectations for the future of this machine are high as we expand its use in both frequency and application to additional crops.
