Blueberry

We have a range of 100% cocopeat options available for blueberry crops and having our own production facilities in Sri Lanka and India means we can manufacture products that suit differing variety, climatic and grower requirements. Our unique production techniques ensure that substrate blocks for blueberries are well draining and homogenous across the whole growing area to aid irrigation strategies. All mixes, dimensions and plastic can be customised to suit individual requirements.

Open Top Containers

Open Top Containers (OTCs) are popular amongst blueberry growers as they give a controlled environment for precision growing. The homogenous distribution of different particle sizes within the substrate means that growers will see even and fast root development, leading to healthier plants and increased crop yields. Coir OTC’s are dried and compressed during production to give easy transport, storage and handling.

Mix Specifications

Designed to give young blueberry crops the best start, we have three different blueberry coir mixes offering different characteristics to suit grower preference and local climate. The specifically chosen particle sizes give rapid hydration and a stable structure for the long cropping period of blueberry plants. We recommend our very clean product washed and/or buffered products with elevated levels of calcium to aid rooting in and promote healthy root growth and high yielding plants.

Naked Slabs are most popular for growing

Naked Slabs

Naked blocks are blocks of coir without plastic, for those blueberry growers that prefer the to grow in rigid pots. We will manufacture the coir block to the correct dimensions to simply walk along the line putting them into the existing pots, and then hydrate. Avoiding the time and cost involved in handling bulk material.
