Hi Mike,

Are you using the Speedling trays on rails or boards to allow for natural root pruning
to take place? I have used just about every imaginable tray configuration but find
Speedling the easiest to get the plugs out. We use automated transplanters and use just
shy of 4000 speedling trays every spring.
