Are you tired of struggling with traditional soil substrates that produce inconsistent yields and require constant maintenance? HydroCoir substrates are the solution to your modern farming needs.  HydroCoir substrates are made from coconut coir, a renewable and sustainable material that provides a host of benefits to strawberry plants. This substrate is capable of holding up to 10 times its weight in water, which means that you can water less frequently and reduce water usage by up to 70%. Additionally, HydroCoir substrates provide optimal air-to-water ratios, allowing for better root development and increased nutrient uptake. But the benefits of HydroCoir substrates don’t stop there. Traditional soil substrates can be prone to diseases and pests, significantly impacting crop yield. HydroCoir substrates, however, are naturally resistant to pests and diseases, minimizing the need for harmful chemical treatments. This makes them an ideal choice for growers who prioritize sustainable and eco-friendly farming practices. But how do HydroCoir substrates perform when it comes to actual crop yields? The results speak for themselves. Studies have shown that HydroCoir substrates can produce yields of up to 20% more than traditional soil substrates. This is due in part to the fact that HydroCoir substrates are capable of maintaining consistent moisture levels, which is crucial for healthy plant growth.

Customized HydroCoir Substrates for Strawberry Farming

Strawberry farming can be challenging, especially when it comes to maintaining consistent yields and minimizing water usage.  This is why, at Can-Neth, we take HydroCoir substrate farming to the next level. We offer a variety of custom blends and mixes that are tailored to specific plant needs. Our HydroCoir substrates are carefully formulated to provide the ideal balance of water retention, drainage, and nutrient uptake for strawberry plants.  Whether you’re growing strawberries for personal consumption or for commercial purposes, our HydroCoir substrates are the perfect choice for maximizing yields and reducing water usage. There are a number of HydroCoir Coco products that can be used specifically for strawberry farming, and, Hydrocoir Grow-Slabs work very efficiently. 

HydroCoir Grow-Slabs 

These ready-to-plant Grow-Slabs are particularly popular with growers of strawberries, tomatoes, and peppers worldwide, thanks to their versatility and ability to thrive in various cultivation systems, including table-top setups, hydroponic greenhouses, and poly-tunnel growing systems. To allow for easy use, HydroCoir raw materials come in a compressed form that can be easily rehydrated and planted into. Since every grower’s needs are unique, we have customized raw material blends and product sizes that cater to individual requirements. Additionally, we provide the flexibility of customizable pre-cutting planter, drip, and drainage holes on our grow bags at no extra cost. “We were impressed with the consistency of the slabs in the first sample batch we purchased from Hydrocoir. The substrate had excellent water and nutrient retention properties and also drained well. The following year, we introduced Hydrocoir Grow-Slabs to 7 hectares of poly-tunnels and the results were simply amazing!”  – Hilal Cekirdek, Greencon Greenhouse, Antalya, Turkey

Using HydroCoir Coco Substrates for Strawberry Farming

The best way to prepare coir for growing strawberries is by superwashing. Superwashing is a critical step in the production of HydroCoir Coco farming substrates for strawberries. During this process, the coco coir is washed thoroughly with fresh water to remove excess salts and other impurities, which can affect the substrate’s water retention and nutrient availability.  Superwashing also improves the substrate’s cation exchange capacity, allowing it to hold onto important nutrients like calcium, magnesium, and potassium, which are essential for healthy strawberry plant growth. By eliminating unwanted salts and increasing nutrient retention, super washing ensures that Hydrocoir coco substrates provide an optimal growing environment for strawberry plants. This process is especially crucial for growers who rely on irrigation systems that use recycled water, which can contain high levels of salts and other impurities that can harm the plants if not removed through super washing. HydroCoir substrates are a game-changer when it comes to strawberry farming. With their ability to hold water, promote healthy root development, and resist pests and diseases, they offer many benefits that traditional soil substrates simply can’t match. At Can-Neth, we’re proud to offer high-quality HydroCoir substrates that are tailored to meet the unique needs of strawberry growers like you. Try them out for yourself and see the difference they can make in your farm! If you want to know more about our HydroCoir Coco products, don’t hesitate to contact us.
