Coco peat is used as a soil additive. Ideal growing media for plants. Used for horticultural and agricultural applications.

Coco peat is porous and cannot be overwatered easily. It’s air filled porosity and high water holding capacity makes it, an ideal growing medium for the plant crops .It is 100% organic and eco-friendly, free from soil borne pathogen and weed.

 Trichoderma is a naturally occurring fungus in coco peat; it works in symbiosis with plant roots to protect them from pathogenic fungi such as pythium. It is not present in sterilized coco peat. In case of sterilized coco peat the fungi Trichoderma is not present due to sterilization.It contains natural trichoderma which acts as a Bio agent against harmful pathogens. It provides a great environment for beneficial fungi and bacteria to grow.

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 under watering. High porosity, high water holding capacity and high cation exchang 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.

Coco Peat is easy to rewet. Dry coco peat is very hydrophilic and quickly absorbs water making it easy to use.  coco peat can be compressed to one fifth or less of its volume reducing transportation, storage and handling costs.

Coco peat is a renewable media. It is extracted from the husk of coconuts. What used to be a waste product just a couple of decades ago is now one of the thrust areas for export for the Coir Board of India.

Coco peat can be pressed into a variety of shapes and sizes to suit all growing applications.Coco peat mixed with coconut husk chips provides all the advantages of coco peat while increasing the drainage of the mix.

Coco peat is consistent and uniform in texture.It is a completely homogeneous material composed of millions of capillary micro-sponges that absorb and hold up to eight times of its own weight in water.The natural pH of 5.7 to 6.5, assures that peat will hold and release nutrients in solution over extended periods without re-watering.

Coco peat from orgakart is 100% dry .No moisture content. It contains several macro- and micro-plant nutrients, including substantial quantities of potassium.
