Lightweight soil, heavyweight performance!

PALMEGRO is developed with the view that the natural by-products of the palm oil industry (Empty Fruit Bunches) no longer have to reflect the negative aspects of the impact upon the environment, but that can now be transformed to a high quality growing medium for plants and crops. A sustainable alternative for natural peat. As a matter of fact, we do give effect to the concept ‘cradle-to-cradle’ to its best!

Available in compessed blocks (output 20 l/kg) or loose in bulk or bags.

PALMEGRO is an organic product with a homogenous structure that is free of chemical additives, weeds, soil diseases and vegetation-damaging viruses. Due to its tough fibre structure the product is not prone to shrinkage and because of its optimal water-air characteristics, it is an ideal product for almost all aspects of cropping and gardening. It is striking that in comparison to other regular fibre products, this product is superior in its water uptake and water drainage capacity.

A fully industrialised production process, based on our in-house developed Stabilizing Technology, delivers consistent and high quality production output: ON DEMAND and 24/7 and YEAR-ROUND!

We do not want to leave matters to chance!
