As the use of coir as a substrate grows, Earthscape is constantly upgrading and updating its capabilities to support different uses and different crops. In fact our ability to customise the product to suit a customer’s individual specifications had made us the most viable partner in providing solutions for green house applications, and yield improvements in crops such as tomatoes, eggplant, raspberries, strawberries, roses, capsicums and cane fruit.
The company is based within what is known as the Coconut triangle in Sri Lanka, where over 65% of all coconut is grown. Earthscape is one of the few organizations which has its own dedicated facilities and full time employees. Most of the coir produced in Asia comes from cottage industries, while an export company collects the produce and exports it.
The investment made by Earthscape has given the company the flexibility of needing only to buy the raw material and produce the coir product to the exact specification of the customer, ensuring a consistent level of quality.
