In recent years, coco peat and coco-peat based blends have been gaining popularity and used by an increasing number of nurseries and farm operators, citing the superior technical attributes of coco products in terms of water retention, roots area aeration as well as the direct benefit of cost advantage comparing to other alternatives.
In Yunnan, one of those people is Wu Zhen Lin, the General Manager of one of the first Avocado seedling nurseries in China. Mr. Wu has had great success in using Pelemix coco peat for avocado seedling, he said. “As one of a few avocado nurseries in China, after careful evaluation and various trials we chose to use a specific blend with higher content of coco-peat, we found that by using Pelemix coco-peat as the base of our substrate blends, the development of the seedling root system is exceptionally strong, we will continue to use the coco-peat in the future, also for new fruit varieties we will introduce to the market.”
Mr. Wu added that he “was impressed with the quality system Pelemix established in its manufacturing process, he knows from visiting many places and different farming operations in China that the Coco-peat substrates delivered better performance and yields in various crops both fruits and vegetables.”
Asked about why choosing Pelemix over other companies, Wu mentioned that “there is no doubt that there are other good companies and suppliers, but I found the overall proposition of products, quality, cost and local China support office of Pelemix very compelling.”
