Cocopeat also known as ‘coir fibre pith”‘ or ‘coir dust’ is a natural, and renewable resource produced from coconut husks by the coconut industries in Indonesia.
Cocopeat is the ‘coir fibre pith’ or ‘coir dust’ produced as a bi-product when coconut husks are processed for the extraction of the long fibres from the husk. Cocopeat is the binding material that comes from the fibre fraction of the coconut husk.
The coir dust is washed, heat treated, screened and graded before being processed into various Cocopeat products for Horticultural and Agricultural applications. Cocopeat was first introduced into English horticulture as a growing medium more than 135 years ago.
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 eight times it’s own weight in water. The natural pH of 5.7 to 6.5, 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.
A natural soil less hydroponic growing medium
Cocopeat is used for a wide range of hydroponic crop production throughout the world including: tomato, cucumber, egg plant, capsicum, zucchini, strawberry, melons, carnation, rose, gerbera, gypsophila, lisianthus, chrysanthemum etc.
Hydroponic crop production using Cocopeat offers the opportunity to consistently maximise yield and quality with minimal environmental impact associated with utilisation of this renewable resource.
Excellent quality and high yield vegetable and cut flower crops
The high water holding capacity provides a buffer in high temperatures and high crop load demand without compromising air supply.
The presence of organic compounds in Cocopeat can stimulate root growth and offer some natural resistance to plant disease.
Produces crops for up to five years
Provided careful hygiene and crop management is practiced, Cocopeat can be used for successive production cycles with short term crops, and can produce crops like roses for up to five years.
HOW TO USE COCOPEAT FOR HYDROPONIC GROWING
Cocopeat can be used for a wide range of hydroponic crop production including: tomato, cucumber, egg plant, capsicum, zucchini, strawberry, melons, carnation, rose, gerbera, gypsophila, lisianthus, chrysanthemum etc.
Growing hydroponically with Cocopeat can be done in specialised containers, pots, or styrene boxes. Using re-hydrated Bales or Blocks is most suitable for these systems.
Cocopeat Grow Bags and the EASYFIL Hydroponic Container System , is the most economical and widely used method for growing hydroponic crops.
