Coconut Peat

Growing Media is also known as Soil Substitutes and our range of growing media includes organically and inorganically enriched media and bare media.

Coco Peat is an organic bare growing media. The growing medium is made out of coconut husk. The husk collected during fiber separation is cleaned, washed and compressed to make the media. The physical property of peat offers an excellent environment for growing plants.

Coir Peat Block (5kg)

We supply Coir Peat 5kg Blocks in two variants – washed and unwashed. Washing controls the EC of the product that is important for root and plant growth. The Coir Peat Blocks are easily breakable. These can hold more than 75 liter water per block
PH of the media is neutral that aids good absorption of nutrients. These have less fungal infections than soil, as well.

Coco peat Manufacturing Process

  • Coco peat collection – Coco peat is procured from coir fiber factories and is spread in large storage yards for washing.
  • Washing – Stored coco peat is constantly washed by heavy monsoon rains and also washed manually with fresh water to bring electrical conductivity to a desired level.
  • Screening – Washed peat is examined for its desired level of EC and pH. During the screening process, fiber chunks and other impurities are removed. Once material purity is verified by is Quality Control Officer the material is further sent for drying to reduce moisture level.
  • Drying – During this step, material is dried under the Sun in open sky on large cemented yard. Once the moisture of the material is reached at desired level, it is sent for second screening.
  • Second screening – During this process sand & other impurities are removed by using rotary seivers
  • Compaction and packing – The final clean coco peat material is compressed to 5 kg blocks and the final product is packed and palletized as per customer’s requirements.
