Using container benches opens up many possibilities for the automation of a nursery. The most basic is the manual system, by which the containers are moved around the growing area by hand using a series of rollers and rail-pipes. This movement helps to achieve the most efficient growing conditions, economies of labour, improved working conditions and increased quality and uniformity in plants.
By using containers it is easy to choose the level of automation to best suit the grower's requirements and budget. It is also possible to add automation at a later date. Transport cars, motorised transport lines, work stations, pushers, pullers, stackers, de-stackers, washing machines, robotic handling machines... where you stop is up to you!
