Coco Peat

 

Coco Peat:
Coir is the outside layer of husk that surrounds the shell of the coconut. It consists mainly of fibres, which have traditionally been used to manufacture rope, carpets, doormats, upholstery stuffing, brushes etc. Between these fibres is the corky substance called coir pith or coir dust, which has recently been widely recognized as the superior growing medium in which to grow most of the vegetables like chillies, tomatoes, celery, lettuce, strawbery, flowers and many other crops. The horticulture industry often calls this substrate coco-peat (or coco peat) or coir-peat. Sometimes it is known by similar sounding brand names.
A TYPICAL PRODUCTION PROCESS*
The entire coconut husk is soaked with water and the fibres removed by combing the husk by using advanced combing mechines and during the process the obtained coir waste is sieved and it is moved from the coir fibre factory and the coir pith then undergoes various cleansing processes such as sieving to remove large fibres and unwanted particles including sand and grit. Sieve size and thus particle size will be determined by customers' requirements. The coir pith is washed at this point to reduce the unwanted salts before being dried. The coir pith will then be compressed into a less bulky form like blocks, brickets,disks of varios weight and sizes as required by end users for suitable shipment. This may be in the form of grow-bags, small 650 grams briquettes or larger 5 to 10 Kg blocks. Compression will vary according to customers’ requirements but will usually be between 4:1 and 8:1. Throughout this entire process, samples will be taken and tested by in-house laboratories to ensure that each batch complies with the required specifications.

Greenhouse crops production involves a number of enriching inputs. The most important element is the growing medium. Absence of physical properties like aeration, drainage and water holding capacity makes Field soil unsuitable for the production of plants in containers. To improve this situation several soil less growing media have been developed. These media are all inert, sterile soil substrates that have excellent aeration drainage and water holding capacity properties.

A wide range of growing media such as Coir pith, Rock wool, Clay Pebbles and Perlite are available in the market. Coir pith is the first totally organic growing medium that offers top performance in hydroponics systems. Coir pith is becoming one of the most popular growing mediums in the world. Coir pith is also known as coco peat or coir dust.

When compared with other growing medium Coir pith has many advantages. It maintains a larger oxygen capacity and superior water holding ability than rock wool which is a real advantage for hydroponics systems that have intermittent watering cycles. Coco peat is also rich in root stimulating hormones and offers some protection against root diseases including fungus infestation
