Coconut fiber is a raw material for an alternative to traditional stands out for its high stability and its ability to retain water and good aeration substrates.
The pH of the coconut fiber is 5. The cation exchange capacity is high, a fact that gives it a high-powered buffer in fertigation.
Has a microcellular texture and porosity close to 96%, comparable to the rock wool, also used for hydroponics. Specifically for this culture technique it has been found that coconut fiber, for hydroponics has a lower nutritional needs minerals fabrics normally used for this type of cultivation.
Coconut fiber used as component peat-based substrates provides high water retention capacity, high aeration of the root system and a great stability of the pH and conductivity of the medium.
Water-holding capacity allows to set frequency and dose of Fertigation. Coconut fiber retains nutritive solutions by capillary action and as a result they are easily assimilated by plants. At the same time, its structure has a high aeration, characteristic that promotes root development.
The coir fibre is a material rich in carbon c/n = 100, which gives it a high resistance to degradation, as well as great stability.
In addition to component of container and Hydroponic growing media, it can be used for many other functions. Some of them are use as organic amendment very slow degradation of soil and drainage, to avoid the clogging of problematic soils.
The macrotunnel allows you to create a greenhouse effect allowing approaching weather needs of the crop as well as protecting it from bad weather such as frost, hail and rain.
The Pata toro greenhouse is a greenhouse created for hydroponic cultivation to be a structure higher and open than the macrotunnel, with a greater flow of air.
Advantages against traditional culture:
We design all kinds of tutoraje for crops
Tutoring provides support to the plant so that you achieve a better production and more harmless and at the time of the harvest fruits easier harvesting.
Its function favors the growth of the plants with habit climbing or creeping (pea, cucumber, melon, etc.), makes sure the fruits are high soil and this favours a better quality fruit.
It facilitates pruning and makes more aesthetic crops, also stocking density increases to occupy air space.
The preparation of the tutoring should start 5-10 days after the transplant or when the plant measure between 20 and 40 cm.
