Due to the adverse harvesting conditions prevailing across Europe, Everris are having to blend in a small percentage of coir to all their Compost mixes for the coming season. Everris are confident that the addition of Coir will in no way affect the performance of their products.
The Price is per pallet - Please phone or email for delivery charges, the charges are based on Post Codes but are very reasonable. Please be aware that the wagon will need a flat hard standing area to off load the Pallet.
Following the wettest summer since 1912 throughout Europe it is estimated that there is an 18,000,000m3 shortfall in peat supply. Recent press reports have shown that all suppliers have been affected with some harvests reduced by over 80%. Baltic and Canadian peat harvests are also affected. Needless to say, peat supplies are low and demand for peat has never been higher. Everris has made a substantial investment into peat moor management meaning that the drainage of all of our sites has improved enabling a higher level of peat harvest than the trade average. The harvest is still below what is needed to meet demand and Everris has purchased substantial quantities of peat for immediate and future deliveries. Despite this, sourcing enough quality peat to meet our customers’ needs cannot be guaranteed and therefore Everris will incorporate a professional quality coir material into all of their mixes. An innovative method of re-constituting compressed coir blocks has been developed by Everris with this material blended with peat at an early stage in the production process. Early incorporation means that the coir is included at the same fraction size as the peat and blends into the mix perfectly. An added benefit of including coir is that the lighter bulk density of coir compensates for the slightly higher density of peat due to increased moisture levels.
Not only is the look and handling of the product similar, the technical performance of the new mixes is excellent and Everris is confident that growers will not notice a difference. By incorporating coir, Everris will be able to meet the volume requirements of its current customers throughout 2013.
