RIOCOCO established the Strategic New Products Development Model. This particular model takes into account the country's capacities and customer needs resulting in product proposals that are potentially attractive to growers, allowing RIOCOCO to react efficiently to newly developed production system and crop type methods. RIOCOCO is the absolute leader in the production, marketing and distribution of coir medium at worldwide level, while holding a consolidated position within the category of greenhouse growing worldwide. RIOCOCO coir has excellent porosity and water holding capacity, which can be changed according to crop requirements by blending different grades of coir. Ideally it holds chemical characteristics specifically for greenhouse plant production. It’s a 100% organic, non-toxic, controllable, renewable, and recyclable product. RIOCOCO uses the highest quality raw materials produced by nature and combined with state-of-the-art technologies and equipment enabling us to produce the highest quality coir fiber products.
RIOCOCO provides the best diverse capabilities for all types of vertical farming conditions. It takes into account a good balance during unexpected changes in humidity and temperature. It adjusts well regardless the weather either encountering wet dormant roots at night, or higher demanding conditions such as, solar noon during the peak summer. RIOCOCO will provide the best safety net for these specific periods, by providing superior water holding/retention capacity by holding 8 - 9 times of its weight of water, excellent drainage (which reduces irrigation that leads to reduced loss of fertilizer), slower degradation due to high lignin and cellulose content, around 45% inhibiting the breakdown of the coir dust when used as a growing medium. RIOCOCO will also provide high porosity, which stores and releases nutrients over extended periods of time. RIOCOCO is easier to wet without adding wetting agents, and has greater physical resiliency that withstands compression. RIOCOCO has excellent aeration/oxygenation providing enhanced root penetration, acceptable Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) and Electrical Conductivity (EC), it contains natural substances and beneficial microbes for plant growth.
Growing using RIOCOCO coir substrate creates a vegetative influence, which must be balanced by applying generative conditions. Normally with the smallest mistakes in irrigation you can immediately see an effect in the crop. However, with RIOCOCO errors can easily be corrected prior to negative results in the crop. Plant survival is at a greater standpoint with the ability to adjust irrigation very precisely and accurately. Specifically, there are less risks of BER. RIOCOCO growing medium formats can be produced at measurement to match the production system and crop type. RIOCOCO can prepare customized blends specific to your climate and greenhouse conditions. The longevity in crops requires several important factors including uniformity, consistency, controllability and the stability of the growing medium.
