The ULTIMATE COCO & CORK ensures ultimate water management and is an airy substrate. This will allow the crop to build an optimal root structure. It does require additional food during the entire cycle, however.
Cork is not only good for the crop, it is also very eco-friendly. At Mills, we believe that that is very important. Cork trees are not cut down, but stripped by hand. This is done every nine to twelve years and significantly extends the life of the tree.
With 2.7 million hectares of forest and an average tree age of between 200 and 300 years, Europe has an abundance of cork trees. This is a good thing, considering they are a major supplier of oxygen.
