Coco Peat

COCO PEAT

Our HERMICO Coco Peat blocks, also known as coir pith, coir fiber pith, or simply coir dust is made from coconut husks, which are byproducts of Coir industries. Coir waste from coir fiber is separated washed, dried, screened and graded before being processed into Coco Peat products of various granularity and denseness. Coco Peat is live substitute for soil in Agriculture, Horticulture, floriculture nurseries, Landscaping and industrial absorbent. Coco peat is biodegradable in nature. Coco Peat absorb water by expanding eight times from its standard block size and as such daily watering is not necessary.

As per your requirements we do fiber and screening for below types.

Based on the Electrical Conductivity, Fiber Content and screening grade coco peat into two types. They are

Low EC Coco Peat

High EC Coco Peat

Low EC Coco Peat

Low EC Coco Peat is used as Growing mediums. Coco Growing mediums over the years have proven itself to be a huge success & have acquired a market share in the Growing medium trade. Today Coco growing Mediums have become one of the most versatile medium that can be applied to any variety of plant both in agriculture & floriculture. Its 100% organic substance is free from any harmful matter and it is an eco-friendly labeled product. These coco peat medium is an organic matter that will cause no harm to soil minerals composition.

Our Coco Peat Benefits

  • Coco Peat increases the porosity of the potting mix. This helps to keep the soil loose and airy helping in better root growth. Better root growth results in better plant growth and higher yield.
  • Coco Peat increases the water holding capacity of the potting mix even as it increases the porosity of the soil. This ensures that the plant does not suffer from overwatering or under watering.
  • High porosity, high water holding capacity and high cation exchange capacity together mean that the quantity of coco peat required per plant can be very less.
  • Coco Peat has excellent properties that make it a very forgiving hydroponic (soilless) medium. Being an organic medium it has high Cation Exchange Capacity allowing nutrients to be absorbed and released to the plants according to their need.
  • Unlike peat, coco peat is easy to rewet. Dry coco peat is very hydrophilic and quickly absorbs water making it easy to use.
  • Unlike inorganic medium such as perlite, vermiculite or rock wool, coco peat can be compressed to one fifth or less of its volume reducing transportation, storage and handling costs.
  • Coco Peat is a renewable media. It is extracted from the husk of coconuts. What used to be a waste product just a couple of decades ago is now one of the thrust areas for export for the Coir Board of India.
  • Coco Peat contains natural Trichoderma which acts as a Bio agent against harmful pathogens. It provides a great environment for beneficial fungi and bacteria to grow.
  • Coco Peat can be pressed into a variety of shapes and sizes to suit all growing applications.
  • Coco Peat mixed with coconut husk chips provides all the advantages of coco peat while increasing the drainage of the mix.
