Accelerated Growth (A/G) Jiffy Plugs

Why Are Accelerated Growth® (a/g) Jiffy® Plugs Important?

We propagate only from seed in our Accelerate Growth (A/G) Jiffy Plugs of different diameters and depths. We use diameters of 36mm and 50mm at the depth of 100mm. Our system utilizes air root pruning to develop many lateral roots for every tree. The open web bottom tray allows air to flow up around each plug to promote the air root pruning. This root pruning causes the tree to keep sending out more lateral roots in search of nutrients as it’s the lateral roots that forage for food and water. This repeated root pruning/new root shoots development causes many lateral roots in each pellet by season’s end. When transplanted, these lateral roots spread out quickly, 360 degrees from the root stem forging for nutrients and water from the surrounding soil. It is these lateral roots that drive fast top growth.

Vans Pines climate-controlled greenhouse, home to over 2 million plugs a year, is a special world. Regulated heat, water, air, extended light, and nutrients optimize growing conditions 24/7.

In just six months, Vans Pines A/G seedlings attain the size typical of 2-year-old field grown stock.

How Are They Going to Grow Your Business Faster?

Crop Uniformity

Vans Pines Nursery’s total climate control regime produces a more uniform crop than field grown plants.

Explosive Growth

Our plugs are given ideal growing environments before hardening off. This results in taller, younger marketable trees.

What Are the Advantages of Vans Pines A/G Jiffy Plugs Over Bareroot Seedlings?

1

360° Lateral Root Pruning

Roots are pruned as they hit the air-permeable sidewall, developing more fine feeder roots.

2

Amazing 1st Season Growth

Because the roots are not damaged at harvest, our plugs do not suffer transplant shock.

3

Better Survivability

Jiffy plugs have a better survival rate compared to traditional seedbed transplants, on average around 90%.

4

Vigorous Growth

Quickly establishes plants to survive late-season dry periods and tough sites.
