Why Use Coir Substrates?
WHAT IS COIR?
Coir substrate is an organic and naturally occurring product used mainly as a growing media or soilless substrate for horticultural applications. Derived from the external husk (mesocarp) of a coconut, it is an environmentally renewable product which was originally a bi-product of the coir fiber industry.
Cocogreen® has led the often termed “coco peat” industry and transformed this into coir substrates. Fully certified and traceable, our product offers guaranteed performance, consistent quality and low ionic content.
We have access to over 2000ha of mature established plantations, and invest using only the most disease resistant, high yielding coconut trees. Cocogreen® ensures continuity of supply, traceability and confidence to the buyer.
The Origins of Coir
Coconut products originate from the fruit of the coconut palm, Cocos Nucifera. Cocos Nucifera is traditionally known as a source of coconut fruit (edible), coconut milk and coconut oils. In addition, the extraction of coir fibres can be used for the production of matting and netting, as well as a wide range of value-added products.
Cocogreen® coir substrates used what was previously a waste components of these industries and created new demand for a sustainable material.
