TOM System

Save time and money with the innovative AgriFast TOM-System; greenhouse trellising applicator and clips.

TOM-System is the new, quick and easy working method for trellising greenhouse tomato plants to string lines.

The AgriFast V-45 ring clips are fastened using the Model TT234 electronic application tool. These metal clips support loads similar to plastic clips, do not hinder plant growth and support formation of the stem.

The Model TT234 allows the user to apply ring clips to string line up to 50% faster than standard clipping methods and requires no specialised training.
