|Frustrated by the slow and inefficient results
of planting celery by hand, Ben Poll along with his two brothers, Henry
and Louis, designed and built a small self propelled transplanter. Their
planter was not only faster and easier than planting by hand, it planted
celery better than hand planting, resulting in a higher quality crop. In
1927 the brothers quit farming and began the Holland Celery Planter Company.
Throughout the years, as farming technology evolved, so did transplanter
designs. More than celery, todays transplanters are also used for most
fruit and vegetable crops, including strawberries, cauliflower, onions,
lettuce and melons. Now, there are models for tree seedlings, tobacco,
and flowers, plus additional equipment for preparing seed beds and handling
|Over the years, the Holland name
has become synonymous with quality and innovation. And, just as in Ben
Poll's days, the concentration is on getting the job of transplanting done
effectively and efficiently. The new Rotory One is a good example, planting
over 60 plants per minute, per row...that's 3600 per hour.
If you have the job of transplanting small seedlings, and want to get
the job done fast, and right... look to the long experience behind every
Holland Transplanter. You can have your choice of single row units, or
multi-row units, tractor mounted or tractor drawn. Holland does it all:
digging the furrow, placing the plant in the soil, giving it a shot of
water and fertilizer, and then repacking the soil back around the roots...
faster and better than can be done by hand.
For the finest in transplanting equipment on the market today, look
to the leader.
Holland Transplanter, since 1927.
