Summary

The aim of this poster is to develop a vegetable transplanter that is capable of working in no-tillage conditions and in presence of organic mulches which cover the soil. The following requirements should be considered for built a transplanter able to work in no-tillage conditions:
- An adequate structure and implements that can transplant under the most challenging conditions;
- The possibility of placing vegetable seedlings in areas with high amounts of residues without disturbing the soil more than necessary;
- The creation of a furrow for proper seedling placement;
- Being able to cover the vegetable root system with soil in presence of a superficial mulch layer.
