THE MOST EFFICIENT PLANT TYING SYSTEM IN THE WORLD!
TomSystem is an innovative plant staking system for greenhouse crops – it ties the plants onto the twine using galvanised metallic staples. This new tool allows a variety of crops to be tied swiftly and simply making it the most efficient machine available in the market.
The TomSystem was designed by Spanish company Agrifast, a subsidiary of Grupodesa which is one of Europe’s leading industrial groups in the fastenings sector. Following extensive trials in Holland the original Version.1 model was launched commercially in late 2012. Following further development, and reacting to great feedback from end users, the new Tomsystem V 2.0 was released in 2017. The new V 2.0 model is 350 gm lighter and more ergonomic then it’s predecessor making it much easier to use.

A MULTITUDE OF USES
The TomSystem was originally developed for use with tomato plants. However, it was quickly identified that the system was equally effective when used with cucumbers, peppers and aubergines.
The Tomsystem provides a variety of benefits to increase productivity and profitability. Key advantages include:
1. No specialized labour is required – users can be proficient in the greenhouse within 1 – 2 weeks
2. Clipping is faster (up to 60% more efficient than other traditional methods once proficient)
3. The V46 clip used in the Tomsystem is biodegradable
4. Clips are healthier on the plant – Tomsystem prevents stem breakage and damage to plants
