Why Speedling?

Pepper Plug

Since 1968, we have been growing vegetable transplants for commercial farmers all over the nation. Even after all of that time, we still remain a leader in the vegetable transplant industry. We are a company that was started by farmers for farmers. Our reputation is built on being a consistent producer of quality products. Speedling combines new technology and experienced growers to ensure your transplants are grown to fit your needs.
With the invention of the unique, inverted pyramid cell planter flat, we changed the way the world grows transplants. The Speedling cell design allows for the production of consistently high-quality transplants that could be mass-produced for seeded vegetables, ornamentals and vegetative propagated products. CEO, Greg Davis says of the inverted pyramid technology, “The shape of the trays reduced production costs for farmers by improving survivability and speed to harvest.” He added, “The open bottom design allowed for air pruning of the tap root, creating strong secondary roots. The overall structure of the roots permitted greater capacity to forage for nutrients and easy extractions with limited damage during transfer.”
With eight nurseries across the nation, we have the locations to produce the quality vegetable transplants you can trust and are needed for your business. Our nurseries are located in Florida (Sun City and Bushnell), Texas (Alamo), Georgia (Blairsville) and California (Watsonville, San Juan Bautista, Nipomo and Coalinga); all produce vegetable transplants. Our greenhouses are strategically located to meet your needs. In California we cover from the coastal areas to the central valley and as far south as Yuma, AZ.

Why use Speedling’s transplants?

image1

Speedling has a history of innovation and success with vegetable transplants. The size of our operation allows us to be on the cutting edge of our industry, working towards better quality, more efficiently. We have a team of professional sales representatives, customer service members and growers working to make your season a success. When your seed cost is high you want to maximize your profits, the use of transplants can reduce costs because less seed is needed and you have an increased likelihood of higher plant count. Growers can target early-season markets and reduce the time needed to grow a crop. Greenhouses are controlled environments, but we are still farmers at the pleasure of Mother Nature.

  • Transplants grown in a greenhouse can be protected against environmental stress, disease pathogens, and insects
  • Transplants allow growers to have near-perfect stands, optimal spacing, and uniform physiological plant age within field blocks
  • Transplants allow more efficient use of fertilizer and irrigation water during early growth stages
  • Transplants have an enclosed root ball which retains moisture and root integrity, reducing transplant shock
