The Japanese Paperpot Transplanting System
AKA Paperchain pot system.
This recent redevelopment of the Transplanter, purpose built for aliums (particularly onion and spring onion) and chenopod (beets) crops means all market gardeners including certified organic (in Australia) are now able to save up to hundreds of precious hours per year therefore thousands of dollars in labour while guarenteeing optimum plant spacing and consistency of seedlings.
With spacings ranging 5, 10 and 15cm (can be 20 and 30 cm) the paperchain pots can facilitate a wide range of crops from basil to lettuce, brassicas from kale to cabbages, peas, corn, Hakurei, the list goes on!
The Transplanter and regenerative microfarming
As it is key to keep our permabeds in cultavation to optimise stable soil health and therefore food production, we welcome the Paperpot Transplanter as a valued tool in our regenerative system.
Allowing us to efficiently transplant healthy seedlings and root systems ready to take off, the Paperpot Transplanter greatly helps to ensure fast inground crop development and will help get us to the annual four crops a bed we need for our six figure gardening model.
Weed management; As the paper chainpots create a protective barrier around the top 3cm of root zone stirrup hoeing is more efficient and time effective, again saving time and money.
microgreens and the flat trays
The HP-16 Transplanter system uses high quality 600mm x 200mm open flat trays built to last decades, these superior design flats are sought after for microgreens, affordable at around $5 AUD they will save you money and work in the medium term, and offers the diverse market gardener a more dynamic tool kit.
Now available through ActiveVista by Longley Organic Farm.
After significant negotiations our family run business is now able to offer the HP-16 (upgraded model) Transplanter and complete system to Australian and New Zealand market gardeners at a price equivalent to the US retailers price, without the hefty freight charge or waiting period.
We have put together two great starter packages, both offering substantial value to get the system up and running.
- The 'Essentials Market Gardener Package' allows full use of the system with enough supplies to set up a substantial amount of beds.
- Our 'Complete Market Gardener Package' with extra cell frames and the 'Batch Seeding Package' gives time and labour saving benefits at both ends of the process.
Australian organic input
Following legislative compliance we have gained exemption for the paperpots to use on our certified organic farm. Both ACO and NASSAA have now granted exemptions.
