Part 1, Rodney Riggs talks about C&M transplanter,"That's THE ONLY Transplanter on the Market!!!"

Interview with Rodney Riggs, lifelong tobacco farmer from Trenton, North Carolina (1530 total acres of tobacco) tells about his how amazed he is with 4, 8 row C&M (Checchi & Magli) setters he has owned for 2 seasons. Speaking with Bill Stalls and Mark Jones from Benchmark, he says it puts the root in the ground better, better stand, packs the ground better. Very low maintainance as well. As he says, "I'd almost quit farming tobacco if I had to go back to another setter, and that ain't no joke."

Part 2, Rodney Riggs talks about C&M transplanter, "There ain't Nothin' you can Improve!"

With other setters for an 8 row planter, you see 4 or 5 people following behind it. With a C&M setter, 2 people can follow and if it is adjusted correctly you don't even need that. Also by adjusting the settings to you can plant small plants or large plants. As lifetime tobacco grower says, "There ain't nothin' you can improve!"

Part 3, Rodney Riggs talks about C&M transplanter, "Planting is the Key"

Planting tobacco most of his life, Rodney knows "planting is the key" to getting a good crop and yield. There have been several examples of farmers who finished planting their field with a C&M setter to test it out, and they could clearly see in the field the part done by the C&M was healthier than the part set with the competition. Rodney told a friend who borrowed his transplanter, "It's gonna cost you some money. . . because you're gonna want one!" Can be used for vegetables like tomatos, melons, cabbage. C&M has been the number one transplanter in the California vegetable market for years and only recently available in other areas of the country and to the tobacco market.
