COCO PEAT BLOCK

The nursery and green house industries use significant quantities of coco peat in the formulation of artificial substrates for production of bedding plants. Among various substitutes tried and scientific investigation and research undertaken in the matter, coir based substrates were found to be a suitable alternative for the formulation of substrates for production of bedding plants.
