At Earth Sense Agro Products private limited, we specialize in procuring, producing and marketing agricultural products to substrates manufacturers and greenhouses in India, and around the world.
We mainly deal with Coco Peat, that is made from the fibrous material between the outer husk and the actual coconut. Originally, the coir was used to make cordage and ropes in ancient India. The pith was first commercially used in the 1980s in Holland to grow roses and lilies. Since it promoted root growth significantly, growers started using coir pith for hydroponic gardening instead of peat moss.
We procure coco peat from carefully screened and hand-picked reliable vendors in South India, and bring it to our processing unit in Tamil Nadu where it is packaged and shipped to clients and buyers all over world.
We are part of the Earth Sense Ventures family that specializes in recycling, refurbishing, and waste management systems since 1999. So we grabbed the opportunity to process and use a product that was once burned away as a by-product from coconut fiber mills, that is also eco-friendlier than its conventional alternative. Since then, we have organically grown our company, and the Earth Sense group has been awarded by the Indian Coir board during the years 2014, 2015 and 2016 for the Excellent Performance in the Industry.

To begin with, the peat was literally the waste product of the coconut industry. Firstly, the coconuts are harvested for the food material the big nuts provide. Then, the oil is used widely in the food and skincare industry. The shell is then processed for fiber, which makes ropes and carpets, leaving behind the dust, or the peat. This peat is now widely used in indoor agriculture, making complete use of the coconut.
On the other hand, coco peat's most used alternative is the peat moss, which is taken from peat bogs. Peat bogs are one of the largest and best ecosystems at long-term carbon sequestering, while also acting as a natural water purifier. Mining peat releases vast amounts of carbon and methane into the atmosphere which is a high-powered greenhouse gas. Another problem is that peat bogs do not regenerate as fast as they are being mined.
Regarding properties, while peat moss is considered acidic with a pH of 3.3 to 4, coco coir has a neutral pH value between 5.2 and 6.8. Nutritionally, coco peat is an excellent source of potassium, iron, manganese, copper and zinc. Coir promotes growth of beneficial bacteria, and also helps to minimize harmful bacteria. This means better growth, higher yields, and less disease.
