Buffering Coco Peat

Buffering of coconut fiber is a chemical process consisting of replacing sodium and potassium with calcium, washing away excess waste.

The recommended buffering ratio is: 1,000 litres of water mixed with 7 kg of Calcium Nitrate will buffer 5 Cubic Meters of coco peat.

 

How do I buffer coco peat?

A very simple method is to use a bunker (wash bay) system to buffer the coco peat.
It can be done in lots of 25, 50, 75, 100, 125 or 150 cubic meters at a time – depending on the size of your wash bay.
