For the past five years, A.M.A. Horticulture (A.M.A.) has partnered with Vineland Research and Innovation Centre (Vineland) to conduct a field trial comparing four commonly used propagation trays, including the innovative, open-wall RootSmart tray. The trial aimed to determine whether root defects occurring in propagation would persist in the field, and whether an open-wall tray design would promote healthier root systems.

Next week on January 10th, A.M.A. and Vineland are launching a new report titled The Impact of Propagation Trays on Tree Establishment to summarize the key findings.

If you plan to attend the Landscape Ontario Congress on January 10th, a copy of the report will be available for pickup. Researchers from the Vineland team will be on hand to share information and answer questions about the field trial. The report will also be available online for those unable to attend the show.
