This is a direct response to adding value through recycling to the daily generation of coconut waste which has since become a challenge in Ghana with traces of this forming a fraction of municipal solid waste.
With constant research into modern farming trends, it was realized that this forms an excellent medium for plant and seedling growth through the sourcing of coconut fibre translating it into the cocopeat and blending it with Municipal Solid Waste.
Sourced from the western, Eastern, Greater Accra and volta region, the coconut fibre is pre washed, dried, sieved and made free from sand and other contaminations such as animal and plant residue and blended with organic compost to create a unique product.
The IRECOP COCOBLEND is a combination of cocopeat and organic compost which is an alternative to growing in soils. It is organic and eco-friendly, free from soil borne pathogens and weeds.
IRECOP Coco blend unlike ordinary cocopeats on the market contains 2.5% of Nitrogen, an E.C level between (0.002 - 0.003) and pH level between (6.5-7.5). It also has a good percentage of Phosphorous and Potassium which supports crop cultivation. When blended with the soil it improves the conditions of the plant as the coco peat decomposes in the soil adding to the organic compost already present in the soil giving it an appreciable water holding capacity which improves aeration in the root zone of plants.
IRECOP-Coco blend can be used for Seedling production, Horticulture, Floriculture applications, Home Gardening and Organic farming, etc.
