Transplants Versus Direct Seeding

When planting large quantities of field crops growers go back and forth as to whether direct seeding or transplants are best. Though direct seeding will result in a stronger and more resilient plant, there is a lot that can go wrong in the early stages that could ruin an entire field.  Extreme weather, birds, squirrels and insects are serious dangers for freshly planted seeds as well as a myriad of fungal and antibacterial attacks.  Many of these dangers can be mitigated with the use of transplants.

 

Greenheart Farms certified organic transplant facility

This process involves ordering a large quantity of seed to be planted and grown in large greenhouses at Greenheart Farms, a certified organic transplant facility.  The plant is grown until it is a few inches tall, and then conditioned so that it is hardy enough to be transplanted in the fields.
