WHAT IS COCO PEAT
Cocopeat also known as ‘coir pith’ or ‘coir dust’ is a natural and
renewable resource produced from coconut husks .Cocopeat is a
multi-purpose soil conditioner and growing medium. It is consistent
and uniform in texture. It is a completely homogenous material
composed of millions of capillary micro-sponges that absorb and
hold up to night times it‘s own weight in water. The natural pH of
5.8 to 6.4 plus an unusually high Cation Exchange Capacity and 27%
of Easily Available Water assures that coir will hold and release
nutrients in solution over extended periods without rewatering.
MULTI-PURPOSE GROWING MEDIUM
Potting Mix manufacturers add value to potting mixes when
incorporating between 10% and 100% Cocopeat to their potting mixes.

Wholesale Seedling Nurseries produce seedlings with stronger and
more fibrous roots when using Cocopeat The combination of high
water holding capacity and high air filled porosity results in very
high seed raising germination rates. Cocopeat is lightweight making
it ideal for vegetables flowers plug and cell production for
tubestock and for tissue culture.
Hydroponic Growers can now use Cocopeat as a natural soiless
hydroponic growing medium. Commercial hydroponic growers worldwide
are producing excellent quality and high yield vegetable and cut
flower crops using Cocopeat Rockwool is being replaced with

Golf Green and Sports field constructors deliver better playing
fields when incorporating Cocopeat as an organic amendment to the
soil for the root zone. When sand with a particle size distribution
in compliance with the USGA standards are amended with Cocopeat at
a rate of 3% by weight the results are golf greens that require
less nutrients and less maintenance.
Cocopeatas an organic amendment in golf greens and sports fields
helps conserve water and reduce nutrient runoff providing sand
suppliers and constructors the opportunity to build better playing

Growers with no harmful environmental disposal problems.
- 100% BIODEGRADABLE
- EXCELLENT ABILITY TO RETAIN MOISTURE ：cocopeat has water holding
capacity 9 times its dry weight in water. Its sponge like structure
has the ability to absorb large quantities of water very quickly
but it will not become waterlogged as excess water drains away.
- ENHANCES STRONG AND HEALTHY ROOT SYSTEM ：cocopeat has the ability
to retain high quantities of
