GreenSoil is a natural eco – friendly organic growing medium produced from natural substances.
GreenSoil is consistent and uniform in texture – a completely homogeneous organic and bio-degradable material composed of millions of capillary micro sponges that absorbs and holds approximately eight times its own weight in water.
The physical, chemical and biological properties of this versatile material fulfill the requirement of a large number of applications in farming and horticulture, specially in sensitive, in-house production systems.
The unique characteristic to hold water and nutrient makes GreenSoil the best medium to grow vegetable, herbs and small fruits in a greenhouse environment. The greenshouse can be built on sand, rocky, non-fertile land where growing plants is naturally impossible or not economically feasible.
GreenSoil is produced as a by product when husks are processed for the extraction of the husks from dry fruits. GreenSoil is a spongy, lignocellulic material that adheres to the fibers as a bonding material in the mesocarp of the nut of the fruit.
GreenSoil is free from weed, seeds and diseases. The properties of GreenSoil make it resistant to bacterial and fungal growth.
Grow pellet is a compacted disc of GreenSoil.
It s an ideal product for seed germination and multiplication plots in tissue culture. Grow pellets contains the right mixture of fertilizer for growing seedling plants and expands when water is added and can be used for direct-planting or in nursery pots.
GreenSoil grow pellets for use with the seedling trays only require addition of water and the seeds required for growing in plant nurseries.
This is used when grow bags are used for the second time. After the first growing season when the plants are removed, the cavity form in the grow bag is filled with the grow plug carrying the seedling plant.
This process is repeated when using the grow bag for the third growing seasons.
Our grow bags are prepared using nitrate treated GreenSoil for the controlled removal of sodium and potassium irons. There are several sizes of GreenSoil particles in various proportions carefully tested and compressed to form an ideal growing medium that can be used for three growing seasons.
The nitrate treatment of GreenSoil particles has an added advantage in the presence of Nitrate as an ingredient required for plant growth.
