New Markets

Retailers catering to consumers seeking more environmentally-friendly design and landscape solutions and pet shop markets, specialising in reptile bedding, are other potential prospects for growing media. Another new global market requirement is the commercialised Medicinal Cannabis (or Marijuana) industry. Cannabis is a botanical product with origins tracing back to the ancient world. Growing media provides sustainable, cost-effective solutions for commercial growers, given the increasing demand for these plants and their medicinal applications.

Grow Bags for Soil-less Farming/Hydroponics

Ideal for commercial nurseries, greenhouses and gardens, coir-based grow bags are a popular medium for soil-less, pot-free planting with a higher yield. Especially, in areas where hydroponic irrigation systems are in place. The UV-treated polypropylene cover enhances durability of the grow bags. During the planting stage, water is added to the grow bag through plant holes to facilitate expansion, It works particularly well with drip irrigation systems. Grow bags are an excellent medium for seed propagation, enabling speedy root development, given the ability to provide a consistent pH and EC condition inside the bag. 

Value Added Growing Media

Value additions offered by the company include variations with coir pith, rice straw or husk chips to enhance aeration of the media. These include specialised mixtures according to plant variety, customisation based on specified needs; and universal and fertilised grow bags as per customer preference, with specific of pH, EC and nutrition levels.
