It is no secret that the abundance of coconut plantations in Sri Lanka and India has given rise to many industries from coconut flour to desiccated, activated charcoal, to coir grow bags and everything in between. While it is not as common as copra oil, desiccated, and activated charcoal exports, coconut substrate-based growing media are a lucrative export industry. The industry has created value for coco peat, which is a by-product of the coir manufacturing sector.
Coir is a natural, and renewable resource produced from mature coconut husks. Coir fiber is a coarse material obtained from the husk surrounding the coconut seed.
The use of coir fiber pith as a soil conditioner and organic compost is an emerging trend in horticulture and agriculture. Rubberized coir fiber pith molded into pots is employed widely as a planting base for home plants also for flower and vegetable cultivation.
Coco Peat is also known as coco-pith. By-product of the extraction process for brown fiber, it is widely used as a growing medium for plants. It is widely known as coco peat, and it is commonly used as a substitute for peat moss in Europe.
The major drawback of Coco Peat is the lack of oxygen retention. But on the plus side, Coco Peat is a great media for maintaining moisture and leeching nutrients.
Coco Peat is a perfect media for tropical plants because as Coco Peat hydrates, it will eventually increase the humidity in terrariums.
Coco peat is available in blocks, bails, discs, and grow bags, and has high water retention qualities and air porosity, which allows for the faster development of plants.
Environment concerns and biodegradability have boosted the demand for coir products. Coir is a commercial grade processed coconut husk that is used for the manufacture of a wide range of products. Including custom products for the applications in farming and greenhouse cultivation.
Grow Bags, Planter Bags, Briquettes, Grow Discs, Grow Cubes, Blocks and Bales and Loose Bags
A spongy material that binds the coconut fibre in the husk, It is an excellent soil conditioner and is being extensively used as a soil-less medium for agri-horticultural purposes. With its moisture retention qualities, coir pith is ideal for growing all types of flora and fauna. Available in raw form or converted into organic manure.

The thickest and most resistant of all commercial natural fibres, coir is a coarse, short fibre extracted from the outer shell of coconuts. Its low decomposition rate means is a key advantage for making durable geo-textiles.
Durable & reliable industrial brushes made from high quality fiber.

Coconut coir is a by a product of the extraction process, therefore, it is a renewable, pH-neutral, non-hydrophobic soil amendment that aerates, improves water retention, and is more environmentally friendly than peat moss.
On the other hand, peat moss is readily available but has many disadvantages such as -Hydrophobic: once dry, is very hard to rewet and more acidic, etc.
AntModity works with producers in Myanmar, India, and Sri Lanka to bring their coir products closer to our customers. We maintain a large inventory of coir products in our warehouses in Korea (Seoul), Canada (Ontario), and the USA (Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana).
