The Proptek 26" x 13" Propagation Tray is an injection-molded plastic tray which is great for growing a variety of vegetables and fruits. The injection-molded design offers long life and repeated use, while the three different cell offerings allow you to choose your desired plant density.
The Proptek Tray features strong corners and rounded edges for ease of use, while the recessed handles make the tray easy and comfortable to lift. This propagation tray also has internal vertical root-training ribs which help guide your plants' roots down towards the drain hole, creating a vertical chimney that aids in drainage and aeration of the root ball.
Designed for T-rail benching, the Proptek Propagation Tray is 13" W x 26" L, and comes in 162, 242, and 338 cell options.

Well made heavy plastic.
these are of really solid quality, and I probably should not have ignored others comments matching my title (they're too oversized for 1020 trays). Would be perfectly standardized for 1020 use as well as lasting forever if they had only used exact same cell size but did only 200 cells per tray. Worse yet the customized tray Gre-meg-stor suggests for them is so oversized for two of these that they don't work on existing tables and existing light spacing....
These trays are SUPER durable and will last a decade at least. A lot of thought went into this design with tapered cells, a large bottom drain hole and vertical root channels to prevent starts from becoming root bound. The Heavy-Duty Injection molded design holds up to aggressive brushing and even power washing. The 338 cell tray is great for starting all my onion varieties from seed and the 162 cell tray is great for starting lettuce, brussel sprouts, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli and cauliflower. I always have a full tray now ready to relay plant as I pull a crop out of the ground.
Love the fact this cell tray is heavy duty. This will more than likely never have to be replaced for the home gardener. It will not fit in a 10x20 tray and I got the large flat tray which has extra room on the side if I have a few smaller pots.
These do not fit a 1020 bottom tray and after so many complaints and not fixing the description, all I can assume, is greenhouse megastar simply doesn't care?! Clearly, people are buying this and expecting it to fit the 1020 bottom tray.
Sturdy trays will work great with less fine potting medium.
Finally found a strong 1020 prop tray. Biggest let down is it will not fit the 1020 bottom trays sold here. I wasted my money on the bottom trays. Will end up cutting these to make them work. Wasting my time and money. Really wish I had read reviews before buying. Really need to stop calling this a 1020 product.
Great tray, while they don't fit standard 1020 trays, 2 fit wonderfully into a garland 23.5"x23.5" square garden tray (CN-GAR-045).
I searched everywhere for Proptek brand specifically because I had trays from them that were at least 5 years old. I contacted the manufacturer and sent me to GHMS. I didn't hesitate to buy 2 - 10 packs of two different sizes. its been 1.5 years later and they look like new! These trays are meant to take a beating, slamming, withstand the elements and everything in between. LOVE my trays, I'm a small farmer, but considering to buy more. :)
Tough, investment-worthy, and made to last, worth every penny of my gardening budget, especially if I need a lot of them with GHMS's current volume discount on 10 or more.
