Planter Units

All the Rogro and Bitza Planter units are designed for a long and low maintenance life. The basis of the design is the heavy duty parallelogram frame.

After many years of testing and development the Rogro range of planters are achieving superior planting performance in all areas.

In addition, a number of options can be added to the planter units to achieve better performance at planting time. The Units are suited to both summer and winter plantings, saving you further money and hassle.
