THE FARMER’S SEEDLING STARTER KIT:

THE FARMER’S SEEDLING STARTER KIT Seedling germination is the beginning of Plant life and how this stage is managed determines how the crop will grow and flourish and ultimately how the farmer benefits from the crop.

The farmers gamble:

The farmers gamble In Africa the predominant traditional seedling germination method is soil based and is usually a gamble. If a farmer needs 100 seedlings he/she will sow a couple of hundred seeds and wait for the best seedlings to germinate and plant them. As a result the farmer will not invest in high quality seeds as he already knows that 60% of the seeds will be lost

Slide3:

The Tedious soil based seed nursery preparation routine

Slide4:

Excellent intact r oot development versus traditional method of plucking POOR ROOT SYSTEM FOR TRANSPALNTING BEST ROOT SYSTEM FOR TRANSPLANTING

Disadvantages of traditional soil based seed bed:

Disadvantages of traditional soil based seed bed Less than 40 % successful germination. Lack of willingness to invest in high grade seeds due to poor germination rate Loss of seeds. Tedious process. Seeds are plagued by soil borne diseases. Poor transplanting survival rate. Long germination cycle

Slide6:

At Cocoponics we give the farmer a germination kit that is used by the most technologically advanced farms in the world at a very affordable price and inclusive of training. It is based on the organic coco peat substrate which is treated and inoculated with organic fertilizer and a set of re-usable plastic germination trays.

The seedling starter kit:

The seedling starter kit Coco peat inoculated with organic seed starter nutrients Three plastic re-usable seed germination trays

Why coco peat ? :

Why c oco peat ? The Cocopeat is a 100% natural organic product . It is an excellent soilless mix .   It maintains excellent porosity for superior root development. Excellent water retention : Hold 7 times it own weight in water hence less watering cycles. No Soil Borne diseases.

Advantages of the kit:

Advantages of the kit Over 90% germination success rate. Willingness to adopt the more productive but highly productive seeds. Shorter germination cycle Organically enriched Saves the farmer water and time Easy and guaranteed transplant mortality as a result of perfect root system No soil Borne diseases and pest Very easy and convenient
