How to Recognize a Superior Transplant
For example, the first step to success in farming tomatoes, one of our most popular crops, is knowing what a high-quality transplant looks like. Growers should look for seedlings with straight, thick stems that are 15 to 25 cm tall with good uniformity. Leaves should be well developed, green, and flat, not cupped or puckered. A slight amount of purpling at the base of the stem and on the underside of leaves is a sign of carbohydrate development, which will improve survival.
The roots should be white, thick, and should fill the plug from top to bottom. Roots which are brown in color and don't extend to the bottom of the plug are a sign that the plants have been grown under moisture stress which can delay rooting in the field. A well-grown transplant will have adequate food reserves to ensure rapid establishment under a wide variety of field conditions.
