Plug planter reduces tomato labour, covers more acres25 September 2020
Ontario's vegetable industry is poised to take a large step forward with the introduction of a new automated planting system developed in Belguim. It's three times faster compared than te plug planting systems currently being used in the province, according to Pascal Jennen. Jennen and his brother Kevin are part of a group of South-western Ontario farmers importing the technology to Canada for this year's spring planting. They spoke at tomato day at Oungah in Chatam-Kent on March 7. "This is not a big corporation we're dealing with. This is just a guy who had a dream," Pascal said.
