Cocofeed has been developed in response to the increasing use of coconut fibre or coco peat. Coco peat contains various amounts of salt depending on its source. Cocofeed has increased amounts of calcium to cope with this problem. The added calcium displaces the salt in the coco peat and is washed out through the drainage water.
Coco peat continues to decompose once its wet. In order to do this, it robs the nutrient of its nitrogen. Cocofeed supplys more nitrogen in the 'correct form' for use by the microbes which are responsible for decomposition. Cocofeed is also suitable for soil growing due to the balance of the nutrients and the technology used to construct Cocofeed.
