  • (PDF) Coir Dust, A Viable Alternative to Peat Moss

    No significant differences occurred among samples with respect to Fe, Mn, Zn, B, Cu, NH4- N, and Mg concentrations. Coir dust samples contained Fe, Mn, Zn, B, and Cu at 0.01 to 0.07 mg · L-1.

  • Coir Dust A Proven Alternative cocopeat.au

    2002-5-1 · Coir dust is the spongy, peat like residue from the processing of coconut husks (mesocarp) for coir fibre. Also known as cocopeat, it consists of short fibres (<2cm) around 2% 13% of the total and cork like particles ranging in size from granules to fine dust. Coir dust strongly absorbs liquids and gases. This property is due in part

    2002-5-1 · On the other hand, phosphorus and potassium contents in coir dust were extremely high (Table 3). Indigenous phosphorus and potassium contents in most of the coir dusts markedly exceeded the optimal standard concentration ranges for P and K of organic growing media and mixes for ornamental potted plant production (Bunt, 1988).

  • Changes in Physical Properties of Various Coir Dust

    2017-1-1 · The pH of 100% coir dust was 4.99, whereas that of 100% perlite was 8.74. The pH of substrate mixes increased as the perlite contents increased ( P < 0.001), but mixtures of coir dust and perlite could maintain weak acidic condition (pH < 7.0) even at 2:8 (coir dust:perlite) substrate mix.

  • Raw Coir Pith, Coco Peat, Cocopeat, Coir Dust, Coir

    Coir Peat is extracted from coconut husks and is widely used world over as an excellent growing medium especially for growing tomatoes, roses etc. Coir peat is an 100% organic matter and they readily absorbs water within its cellulose structure and maintains humidity for a long time thus enhancing faster developing roots resulting more flowers and fruits per plant

The moisture, ash, lignin, and cellulose contents of the coir dust were determined by measuring the cation exchange capacity (CEC) and the pH were found to be 2.39 mmol g-1 and 6.4 respectively. The degree of swelling of coir dust increased with increased solvent contact time.

  • Physical and Chemical Properties of Bottom Ash and

    In substrate mixes of acidic coir dust (pH 4.99) and CBA, increasing the proportion of bottom ash gradually increased the pH, which is similar to perlite. Electrical conductivity of the substrate increased as the ratio of FBA in the substrate mix increased, largely caused by the high Ca and Na content of FBA.

This coconut husk contains fibrous material known as coir that contains thick mesocarp of the coconut fruit (Meerow 1997). From the coconut husk, long fibers of coir are extracted and used for manufacturing products like brushes,

    2002-5-1 · Coir dust is used as a medium for hydroponic production of flowers and vegetables replacing materials like rockwool, perlite and sawdust. Coir dust is also now used in soil mixes for golf courses. A recent example is the new course north of Sydney called “The Springs “. Coir dust has been trialed as a casing layer in mushroom production and

    1979-1-1 · The coir dust yields a gas very high in hydrogen but low in methane and carbon monoxide contents. Wood gas on the other hand has high methane and carbon monoxide but very little hydrogen. Per unit volume, wood gas has a higher fuel value than coco gas, but based on equal amounts of wood and coir dust processed, the total heat available in coco

    This study evaluated the use of bottom ash as a root medium component when mixed with coir dust in different ratios. Each of two kinds of bottom ash (coarse bottom ash, CBA, with particle size ≥5 mm; and fine bottom ash, FBA, with particle size ≥5 mm) were mixed with coir dust in the ratios 10:0, 9:1, 8:2, 7:3, 6:4, 5:5, and 0:10 (coir dust:bottom ash, v/v).
