Thursday, September 15, 2022 | Troy Buechel
Horticulture Specialist Troy Buechel talks about one of PRO-MIX growing media components which is the coir.
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)
PRO-MIX® is a registered trademark of PREMIER HORTICULTURE Ltd.
Growing media are one of the most widely used materials for growing greenhouse crops.
