Coir mulch mat is also called Coir weed controller mat, coir disc and Tree mat. It is made from 2 to 6 mm thick rubberized coir sheet and used for protecting the plant from evaporation. The fibre disc helps suppress the weeds, lower water loss from the soil surface and slow up slugs and snails. Also used as weed cover around the bottom of plant preventing direct sunlight thus avoids the growth of weed under the disc. Come in various sizes according to the requirements of the customers.
1. Eco-friendly from Coco fiber.
2. Easily bio-degradable.
3. Used for growing indoor-outdoor plants.
|The CoCo Coir Pot is a biodegradable cultivation pot made of plant(CoConut) fibers. It is used for horticulture, in ornamental plant, vine and tree nurseries, as well as for the domestic gardening market. It has exceptionally high permeability to water, air and roots. CoCo Coir Pot is used by those looking for faster cultivation, an excellent root system and re-establishment without any shock from transplanting.|
Advantages of CoCo Coir Pots.
The CoCo Coir Pot is easily Bio Degradable and transforms into Organic Matter in due course Containers impermeable to roots all cause deformation to the roots. The severity of this depends on the shape of the pot and the development of the plants. The most common problem is coiling of roots, roots gathering in corners, roots growing upwards, crushed roots, etc.
When plants are grown in a CoCo Coir Pot, the roots quickly penetrate the pot walls. Contact with the air stops the roots from growing, root buds start to appear and secondary roots start to develop throughout the pot. This phenomenon is known as "aerial root prunning".
The volume of the pot is used 100% by a dense network of root hairs of the plant . In containers with impermeable walls, a few very long roots use all the area around the pot.
When a plant grown in a CoCo Coir Pot is planted or repotted, without removing the pot, the dormant root buds set during aerial containment are immediately activated. There is no shock from transplanting, this difference is particularly marked when ground conditions are difficult (cold, drought, adverse season, etc.).
There is no deformity in the root system, the plant establishes easily and settles into the soil better. This is particularly important for perennials.
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 underwatering.
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.
|Benefits of composted coir pith (called coco peat after processing)|
|The addition of composted coir dust improves soil texture, structure and tilth, sandy soil become more compact and clayey soil become more arable.|
|It improves the soil aggregation|
|It improves the water holding capacity (more than 5 times its dry weight) contributing towards increased soil moisture.|
|The bulk density of both the sub surface (15-30 cm) sioil is reduced to considerable extent with the application composted coir pith.|
|Composted coir dust contains all plant nutrient elements and it can provide a supplemental effect along with inorganic fertilizers.|
|There is improvement in cation exchange capacity of soils, where composted coir pith is applied.|
|Coir pith compost application increased the soil native microflora because of addition of humic materials.|
|Ammonification, nitrification and nitrogen fixation are increased due to improved microbiological activity.|
|Application of coir pith (coco peat) compost|
|It is recommended that 1 kg of composted coir pith per square feet of land irrespective of the raised.|
|Is is advised that composted coir pith should be applied basally before take up the sowing.|
|For nursery development in poly bags and in mud pots, while preparing the potting mixture 20 % of composted coir pith can be mixed with the soil and sand before filing it in the poly bag or mud pot|
|For applying to the established trees like coconut, mango, banana and other fruit bearing trees, minimum 5 kg composted coir pith is required.|
Presently we are manufacturing Coir Peat in the following forms:
