An OMRI-certified option for organic and hydroponic growing

For the organic or hydroponic grower seeking an OMRI-certified option for fast and effective seed germination, plug and transplant production for leafy greens and culinary herbs, Hort Americas brings you the Riococo Closed Bottom Organic Plug (CBOP). Whether you grow in 1020 trays, grow bags, nutrient film technique (NFT), raft systems, aquaponics or aeroponics systems, with this CBOP you are well on your way to attaining maximum yields.



Dr. Hugh Poole, international agricultural consultant, said coconut coir is initially high in sodium, potassium and chloride salts. “Where the coconut coir originates from can have an impact on the salt levels.” He further states, “If the EC (electrical conductivity) level is below 1.0 milliSiemens (measure of electric conductance) per centimeter (mS/cm), growers should not have to leach the coir. In most cases, the coir producers have already leached the coir for the growers. It should be ready to use. If the salts level is high, then the coir producer has not done its job. A producer should be able to provide growers with the coir’s EC value, its pH value and other information, including percent moisture, as well.”
