Coir for Berry Crops- THE FUTURE IS BLUE

Berries production and consumption has been increasing rapidly in recent years. Greenhouses and mainly tunnels are being used to extend the growing season and harvesting period. Blueberries, Raspberries and other kinds of berries are traditionally grown in the ground. The soil should be well-drained, yet with sufficient moister holding capacity.
Optimizing berry production requires a high level of control, a balanced air-to-water ratio in the ground of growing media, proper micro-irrigation and fertilization.
All these can be achieved when using soilless coco-coir technology for growing berries in greenhouse. 
The leading ways for growing berries are growing in coir open tops, growing berries in pots and growing berries in containers. Pelemix coco coir blend can suit all those ways of growing berries.
