Checchi & Magli Transplanters
Transplanting through plastic
Plastic mulch holds moisture in and reduces weeds so it’s a popular method for planting tomatoes, zucchini, melons and pumpkins. When transplanting seedlings through the plastic mulch, you need a machine that perforates the plastic and plants accurately to a consistent depth and is adjustable for variable row and plant spacing.
The Checchi & Magli transplanting machines have a unique perforating cup design, available in several sizes. This gives you flexibility to change the cup according to your spacing requirements and ensure that no unnecessary openings remain in the plastic mulch to attract weeds.
You can run the transplanting machine and a Checchi & Magli plastic mulch layer machine in unison. This provides an efficient, single-pass method to form the bed, lay and seal the plastic and plant tomatoes, zucchini, melons and pumpkins.
