Marconi Vivai in Roverbella (Mantua) produces vegetable seedlings in pressed cube, the most widely used system for the production of leafy vegetables as it guarantees high speed and uniformity of vegetative growth during the transplanting phase.
The strip cube is designed for automatic transplanters as this system facilitates the insertion of the cubes into the machine, thus speeding up the transplanting phase.
The sizes currently produced are: 4.2 – 3.7 – 3.2
The single cube is routinely used for transplanting above ground or with semi-automatic transplanters: this type of product respects maximum root growth and quality and is an absolute advantage for better crop and root growth.
