Why Use Coir as a Growing Medium
Coir is superior to peat moss in both chemical nutrient value and in physical properties. Commercial growers in Europe and the Middle East have established positive agronomic benefits of Coir use. Now, commercial growers in North America have begun to see increases in gains from using Coir.
In addition, unlike peat moss, the process of obtaining Coir does not destroy natural ecosystems, thereby making Coir a natural, renewable resource, and an environmentally friendly alternative to peat moss.
