The future of farming is here to stay! Hydroponics or Indoor vertical farming in a controlled environment is practically weather and climate-proof farming. LED lighting, nutrient enriched water, soil-free growth mediums like coco peat etc are used in hydroponics to suit the needs of the plants. Grow your plants the hydroponics way with Nature’s Shield Coir peat!
The recent trends of hydroponic farming eliminate all unnecessary components of traditional farming. This soil less process minimises the risk of invasion by bugs and weeds into the growth environment. The seeds can be planted in coir peat medium and the seedlings attach roots to this ensuring a much more clean and simple process.
These seedlings are sometimes placed into growth trays which are stacked upwards in a vertical racking system. This allows farmers to increase productivity, optimise the total space usage and reduce their land use by up to 90-99%.
Nature’s Shield Neem coir peat
Nature’s Shield Neem coir peat is an exceptional fertiliser enriched growing medium for hydroponic farming that is sustainable & eco-friendly. As a unique fertiliser enriched growing medium it produces outstanding yields for plants and produce. Coir peat is made from the husk of the coconut shell & enriched with neem cake fertiliser, which is the natural by-product of neem oil production.
The highly porous, water-conserving structure of the coir combined with the goodness of Neem provides all-round benefits as a slow-release fertiliser to build plant's natural immunity against pests. Nature’s Shield Coir peat is certified by Australian Certified Organic (ACO) and is also vegan Australia certified as an allowed input for organic farming due to its huge advantages over any other growing medium.
Hydroponic farming is practised on a large scale in urban areas and it has great potential to:
❖ Supply enough food in a sustainable fashion
❖ Allow large tracts of land to revert to the natural landscape
❖ Take advantage of abandoned and unused urban spaces
❖ Allow year-round food production without loss of yields due to climate or weather change
Nature’s Shield Organic Neem Coir peat is now available in retail nurseries & garden centres in Australia.
