Its air filled porosity and high water holding capacity makes it an ideal growing medium for the plant crops. Coco peat, also known as coir pith, coir fibre pith, coir dust, or simply coir, is a by-product of de-fabricated coconut husks from Coir Industries.

Roles in garden soils:

Coir being fibrous in nature holds many air pockets which helps the crops to root easily and profusely. This increases the surface area of root system thereby facilitating better absorption of nutrients from soil.

2. Good water retention:
Absorbs water rapidly and holds it for longer periods preventing desiccation of plants during hotter climates especially in tropical areas.

3. Eco friendly component of soil:
Coir amended soil combats bacterial and fungal infections. Coir has a plant origin and therefore 100% biodegradable. Periodical release of nutrients from coir helps to keep the soil rich for all seasons.

4. Reduces irrigation frequency:
