A new concept for growing bare root singularized seedlings

A new concept for growing bare root singularized seedlings

Paper, American Society of Agricultural Engineers (82-1073): 24 pp

A seeded tape-sheet system is proposed for growing bare root seedlings for the future automation of an unmanned tree planting machine capable of operating under adverse forest conditions. The system utilizes a combination of non-degradable material attached to a sheet of degradable material where single seeds are positioned in a special array for future handling of seedlings during field planting.
