Uses of coir pith blocks:

As a potting mix:
Coir pith block can be used as potting medium. It can be mixed with required fertilizers and nutrients according to the type of plant to be grown.

For mushroom growers:
Coir pith blocks are being used by a lot of mushroom growers around the world for the large scale production of edible mushrooms.

As a soil supplement:
Re-hydrated coir block mixed with soil improves water holding capacity and aeration.

For generating seeds:
Coir dust in starter containers speeds up germination and profuse rooting of the seedlings.

For tissue cultured plants:
Wetted coir brick in poly bags encourages initial growth phase of tissue cultured plants and grafted seedlings.

Roles in garden soils:

1. Increased air porosity:
Coir being fibrous in nature holds many air pockets which helps the crops to root easily and profusely. This increases the surface area of root system thereby facilitating better absorption of nutrients from soil.

2. Good water retention:
Absorbs water rapidly and holds it for longer periods preventing desiccation of plants during hotter climates especially in tropical areas.

3. Eco friendly component of soil:
Coir amended soil combats bacterial and fungal infections. Coir has a plant origin and therefore 100% bio degradable. Periodical release of nutrients from coir helps to keep the soil rich for all seasons.

4. Reduces irrigation frequency:
Irrigation of coir-grown plants may be done at longer intervals as the moisture holding capability of coir is high. It can be reused for up to 4 years.
