Forceps are used to gently remove seedlings from magenta box and plant into moistened soil in seedling tray.  The tray will be moved to the greenhouse to allow the seedlings to continue growing until such time the plants can be moved to the field plot.  NOTE:  During the first 24 hours in the greenhouse, you might want to place the tray in the shade, or loosely cover to protect the seedlings from direct sunlight. Above are the transplanted seedlings 4 days after being moved to the greenhouse.
