Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to an apparatus and a method in a greenhouse cultivation arrangement for the automatic transport of long growth troughs. The apparatus comprises parallel grasper means (2) supported on the carrier (1) movable above a track-like frame (10) for choosing and transporting selected growth troughs (6) in the longitudinal direction of the frame (10). Each grasper means (2) comprises a grasper head (3) capable of engaging a growth trough (6) and moving the trough substantially in the vertical direction. The apparatus is adapted for the longitudinal transport and the spacing of plants being cultivated in troughs and it is also adapted for the additional or separate transport and storage of empty troughs in a holding device (5) of the apparatus.
