RootSmart™ Propagation System
Grounded in horticultural research, the RootSmart™ propagation system is designed to help growers avoid misdirected roots (circling, ascending or descending roots) to improve tree growth and performance. The unique wall-less, bottomless tray uses air pruning and has been proven in field trials at Vineland Research & Innovation Centre to promote healthier root mass and distribution and better tree establishment.
