air trays®

Air Trays® allow for root air-pruning, which enhances root architecture and stimulates a larger, more fibrous root system. The trays are unique and designed to provide optimal air-circulation and drainage and to prevent circling and girdling of roots.

All Air Trays® are specially developed for improved production efficiency, automation and optimised handling.

  • Ideal for fruit trees, nuts, landscape shrubs, native plants and trees
  • Prevents circling and girdling of root
  • Root air-pruning
  • Reduces root defects
  • Promotes Wet /Dry Cycles
  • Easy sorting and consolidating
  • Improves labour efficiencies

DESIGNED FOR JUMBO ELLEPOTS 

Air Trays® support the Ellepots in the plants early stages and stops them drying out too fast. The Air Trays® are designed to provide young plants with optimal air circulation, drainage and create the best possible conditions for great air pruning of the root system. 

Air Trays® are a patented innovation developed by Blackmore Company.
