Abstract
(EN)
A horticultural seedling tray (12) made of moulded plastics material and having a plurality of cells (6, 8) disposed in a predetermined array with each cell being adapted to contain a seedling together with a plug of growing medium. The cells (6, 8) in indexing regions of the tray (12) are aligned in rows between opposed front and rear end edges (34, 35) of the tray with indexing engagement means (2) being integrally formed on an underneath side of the tray between two adjacent said rows of cells (6, 8) on both sides of the tray. The indexing engagement means (2) being configured to define a plurality of aligned and uniformly spaced indexing teeth receiving zones (33) between said opposed edges (34, 35) of the tray (12). Also used in combination with this tray is an indexing assembly (21) that includes a drive shaft carrying indexing discs (11) to engage with each aligned group of indexing teeth receiving zones (33).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un bac à semis d'horticulture (12) en plastique moulé et comprenant plusieurs cellules (6, 8) placées selon un quadrillage prédéterminé, chaque cellule étant destinée à contenir un semis combiné à un bloc de milieu de croissance. Les cellules (6, 8) se trouvant dans les zones d'indexage du bac (12) sont alignées en rangées, entre les bords avant et arrière opposés (34, 35) du bac, le moyen de réception pour l'indexage (2) faisant partie intégrante du bac, sur un côté inférieur de ce dernier, entre deux rangées de cellules adjacentes (6, 8), de chaque côté du bac. Ledit moyen de réception pour l'indexage (2) est conçu pour délimiter plusieurs zones (33) de réception de dents d'indexage espacées régulièrement entre lesdits bords opposés (34, 35) du bac (12). On peut également utiliser, conjointement avec ledit bac, un ensemble d'indexage (21) comportant un arbre de commande portant des disques d'indexage (11) destinés à venir s'engager dans chaque groupe aligné de zones (33) de réception de dents d'indexage.
