Video: How a growbag is made

Last year, horticulture substrate manufacturer Botanicoir was visited by a crew from the online educational platform Coconut Information. The result of the visit was a nice video featuring Kalum and Samantha Balasuriya giving a brief explanation of the production processes at their plant in Sri Lanka.

Based in the UK, Botanicoir is a coir substrate manufacturer that has worked for many years with some of the world’s biggest soft fruit growers providing high quality growing media for a wide variety of systems. Recently they launched their new product “Precision Plus” after significant investment in their production facility. Over the last few seasons, Botanicoir has pioneered and developed a specific blend of coir particle sizes best suited to strawberry crop production. This mix has very good drainage and air-fill porosity, industry leading water and nutrient holding capacity, excellent structural integrity and longevity of unit production. Their products can also be found in other production systems such as hydroponic greenhouse vegetables and flowers.
