BERRIES AND BLUEBERRIES We have zoned in on this relatively new market and produced some great products to support all berry growers.
The South African blueberry sector is export orientated with at least 70% of the production being sent abroad. Growth in the areas planted to blueberries has averaged above 30% per annum over the last 5 years. We have zoned in on this market and produced some great products to support growers in this field.

Growing Substrate Cocopeat
Square Blocks – We have designed compacted square blocks to fit in 27litre UV white bags with different ratios of fibre, pith and husks for blueberry production.
Round Blocks – we have designed compacted round blocks to fit into the 25 litre and 27 litre Tuffpots. These blocks consist of the right ratios of fibre, pith and husks for growing blueberries successfully.
The high lignin percentage makes cocopeat very stable and slow to decompose.
