Code your plants efficiently with Leibinger printers

Information on the mandatory EU Plant Passport

Due to EU regulations, plant manufacturers will have to observe heightened coding and marking provisions and place a so-called plant passport on the smallest trading unit!

With Leibinger CIJ printers, you can implement the Plant Passport optimally and efficiently! We code your plant pots with non-contact direct printing.

  • Low costs per print – the passport is printed directly on the product (without an expensive label).

  • Extremely fast-drying and hardy inks for frozen temperatures; for all relevant materials, e.g. for plastic cachepots, clay pots, stock cards, wooden pallets, cardboard cards and boxes, shrink films as outer packaging, etc.

  • Simple switching between print jobs for different plant species.

  • Thanks to the Leibinger Sealtronic technology, the ink doesn’t dry in the printer even during production breaks!

  • With the Leibinger JET3up PI, dark flower pots can also be coded with light, pigmented inks.
