PRO-MIX HPCC MYCORRHIZAE
HPCC MYCORRHIZAE – high porosity, chunk coir
When seeking the ideal balance between air porosity, drainage capacity and water retention, PRO-MIX HPCC is the solution growers select. With unique chunk coir reducing soil compaction and carefully selected peat moss, this formulation provides qualities promoting growth and offering a delicate, well-calculated control over the root zone. PRO-MIX HPCC provides growers what they need to optimize the quality of their hanging baskets, large containers and long-term crops.
- Foliage plants
- Potted flowering plants
- Vegetable transplants
- Potted trees and shrubs
- Greater frequency of dry-down periods (compared to general purpose peat-based mixes)
- Grower can more easily leach fertilizer salts during crop cycle
- Difficult to over-water
- Well suited for undesirable, year-round weather conditions
- Premier Tech’s peat moss comes from bogs that are certified under the Veriflora Program. This certification ensures the application of good management principles in all aspects of sustainable development. The criteria include environmental assessment, social engagement, and product quality.
- Improves fertilizer uptake; reduces fertilizer costs
- Increases the resistance of plant to stresses; reduces maintenance costs
- Optimizes results without changing growing practices
- Increased root mass, flower production, plant size, yield
- Improved water uptake and increased drought resistance
Advice from our specialist
What is the difference between PRO-MIX HP and PRO-MIX HPCC?
PRO-MIX HP contains a base of sphagnum peat moss and a high percentage of perlite. PRO-MIX HP-CC contains sphagnum peat moss, chunk coir and a lesser amount of perlite than HP. PRO-MIX HP holds less water than HP-CC, therefore it will dry out faster.
What is in PRO-MIX HPCC?
PRO-MIX HPCC is a High Porosity – Chunk Coir growing medium that contains a base of sphagnum peat moss, chunk coir and perlite. It ideal for large potted crops (4 inch - 10 cm or larger), hanging baskets and large containers when high water holding capacity is desired without sacrificing high air porosity.
Is PRO-MIX HPCC soil or coco?
PRO-MIX HPCC MYCORRHIZAE is a peat/chunk coir/perlite based 'soilless' growing medium. It contains 65-75% sphagnum peat moss, chunk coir, perlite, limestone, starter nutrient charge, wetting agent and MYCORRHIZAETM.
In this fourth and last part of our series on growing greenhouse vegetables and herbs, we will address the appropriate growing medium to use.
SPHAGNUM PEAT MOSS (65-75%)
Canadian Sphagnum peat moss is a natural, organic matter that comes from a peat bog. This primary resource is carefully harvested by vacuum harvesters. Peat moss comes in various fibrosity and levels of decomposition. Once carefully graded, peat moss assures that qualities of each grade are optimized for based on grower and uses for a final product reaching high quality requirements.
Coir is a natural product which comes from the exterior envelop of an aged coco fruit. We have carefully selected a material providing the 3 important following qualities for a high-quality professional growing medium:
- Physical (particles type and size)
- Chemical (washed material with a very low salinity level)
- Microbiological (exempt from any pathogens)
Perlite is an alumino-silicate ore of volcanic origin. The raw ore is crushed, graded and screened in various particle sizes. Perlite has a high total-porosity and improves drainage and air porosity.
Used to adjust pH to optimum range. Also a source of Calcium and Magnesium.
A wetting agent is a substance that reduces the surface tension of water, allowing water to penetrate and uniformly wet growing media.
MYCORRHIZAE - PTB297 TECHNOLOGY
PTB297 Technology, Glomus intraradices - Mycorrhizae are beneficial associations between a mycorrhizal fungus and roots, creating a network of filaments that explores the soil and access more nutrients and water, and transfer them to the plant.
