Labour is an important cost item for pot plant businesses. A lot of operations have to be done manually. The WPS Walking Plant System simplifies these tasks with extensive automation. So you save on labour costs in the growing and finishing stages. You are also investing in better growing conditions for your plants. A pot plant that is set wider more often will develop better. And that benefits your bottom line!
All the expertise you want in one system
In the Walking Plant System, the plants are cultivated in gutters on a belt. They are moved using smart shuttles (robots). When filling the gutter, the robot picks up the plants from the main conveyor belt and places them into the designated cutter. Plants can be left in the gutters during the entire cultivation period. Spacing of plants is one of the most labour intensive activities in a nursery. The Walking Plant System does this 100% automatically.Therefore, more frequent spacing can be done without extra costs. Leaving you with a plant of higher quality.
Growing plants in gutters makes them more robus and growth rate is increasing due to a good micro-climate.
