Product derived from a coal-based substrate manufactured in Poland. The Polish firm Carbohort develops environmentally-friendly substrate materials for soil and soil-less growth environments.
The foundation of Carbohort is made up of softer, brown coal.
Soft slices of brown coal found in the Carbohort substrate are utilized to enhance the quality of soils, especially light soils.
The Carbohort substrate is completely biodegradable and may be recycled once the plants have been harvested.
The substrate can continue to be used for growth, or it can be transformed into an organic fertilizer that can be utilized on any farm, for example, to cultivate floral plants, in plant nurseries, or even to enhance the poor mineral condition of light soils.
The medium is appropriate for plant growth in arid environments when the only available resources are sand and water of substandard quality.
This basis is made up of organic coal, which may also be considered an analog for humus.
According to the company, multiannual studies conducted on the Carbohort substrate at the Research Institute of Horticulture in Skierniewice have shown that this substrate is highly suitable for soil-free, prolonged glasshouse vegetable growing. These studies were carried out to demonstrate that this substrate is highly suitable for soil-free, prolonged glasshouse vegetable growing.
