Automatic field planters for vegetable and salad crop seedling transplanting

Our Australian built transplanters are designed to save labour on the farm and provide a fast and efficient means of planting a wide range of crop seedlings into the ground. As labour bills increase and the produce price that the grower receives for his or her efforts continue to get squeezed by the big grocery chains, it's increasingly important that the grower finds a way forward to maintain and grow his profits. That way forward is a move towards crop planting automation.

Many companies have tried their hand at automatic planting over the years but few have made a success of it. Transplant Systems recognises that the key to success lies not only with well constructed and reliable automatic planters but also with the seedling supply company and the condition of the planting beds. When everything is in place and you have committed to the automatic planting system, you can be planting up to 30,000 seedlings per hour with as few as one or two workers.

Sprinkler Types

  • Fixed, or stationary, sprinklers feature several different designs including rings and "salt shakers." They cast water in a single pattern over a fixed area.
  • Oscillating sprinklers have a long tube with numerous openings and move back and forth, emitting a fan-shaped waterfall.
  • Impact sprinklers, sometimes called impulse sprinklers, rotate in a circle and squirt out a single jet of water, making a distinctive clicking sound as they do.
  • Rotating sprinklers feature two or more arms and spin to disperse water in a complete circle.
  • Sprinkler hoses lie along the ground and squirt water from tiny holes to cover a long, rectangular area.
  • Traveling sprinklers often look like little tractors and move through your yard in a preset pattern, dragging the hose behind them.
  • In-ground sprinkler systems are installed into the lawn and pop up at a designated time, usually cycling their way through the yard to provide complete coverage.

  • Watering Tips

    • Use sprinklers more frequently on hot summer days. Because grass is composed primarily of water, it is particularly vulnerable in high-heat, low-water conditions.
    • The type of soil you have will dictate how frequently you need to water. If you're unsure of when to water, look for changes in grass and plants as slow or arrested growth and browning will give you an indication that more moisture is needed. Allow soil to dry between waterings.
    • Intermittent watering over several hours provides thorough root penetration.
    • Sandy soil needs short, frequent periods of water.
    • Clay soil requires less watering than sandy soil.
    • Loam soil holds water longer than sandy soil but not as long as clay.
    • Water your lawn early in the morning so water doesn't evaporate as quickly as it does during the hotter parts of the day and to give grass sufficient time to dry before nightfall. Constant wetness can lead to disease and insect infestation.

    Sprinkler Features

    • Automatic Timer: A common feature of in-ground sprinkler systems, automatic timers allow you to choose when you want sprinklers to go on or off, so you can start watering early in the morning without having to crawl out of bed to turn them on.
    • Flow Timer: Sprinklers with this feature monitor the amount of water they emit and let you calibrate it to a specific setting. This will allow you to customize the amount of water you're using to ensure thorough soaking on different parts of your lawn.
    • Automatic Shutoff Valve: A good feature to have in traveling sprinklers, these valves automatically cut off the water supply once the sprinkler has completed its pattern to ensure that water is not wasted and your lawn doesn't get waterlogged.
