The finger transplanter are the ideal solution for seedling with bare root, ie those specimens to which the roots are cleaned after being extracted from the cultivation soil. Subsequently, the seedlings are protected with a casing until the transplanting phase in a new soil. Undergoing most of all this process are sweet potatoes, strawberries, leeks, onions and small fruit trees (including vines). This technique allows to reduce quite a lot the costs of production and at the same time makes the seedlings easily transportable from one place to another.
In addition to the typical precautions required by traditional transplanting phases, those with bare root need further attention, just to protect the seedlings forcibly extracted from a ground where they were rooting. This is why the irrigation following transplanting and, above all, the finger transplanters, machines specifically designed for this type of transplant, assume importance.
Ferrari Growtech has designed last-generation finger transplanters for effective and optimal transplantation of bare root seedlings. In this regard, in the catalogue you can find the FPP EVOLUTION SHORT CHAIN and the FPP EVOLUTION LONG CHAIN: both finger transplanter are ideal for seedlings with bare root, allow a quick and effective adjustment of the depth of the pincers and the depth of work of the plows that can handle plants up to 60 cm in height. The machines have a parallelogram with a standard front wheel. The substantial difference between the 2 models is given by the possibility of inserting a number of different pincers, which will correspond subsequently to a different distance on the row. FPP EVOLUTION SHORT CHAIN has an adjustable elliptical catenary with 10 and 15 pincers; differently, the FPP EVOLUTION LONG CHAIN triangular catenary can count from 16 to 32 pincers, where a greater number of pincers also corresponds to a smaller distance between one seedling and the other on the row. In this way it is possible to precisely adapt the machine to the single seedling and to the single processing, obtaining surprising results in terms of productivity and effectiveness of the bare root transplantation process.
