Horticultural Week Podcast – Pea-Free Growing Media – Products, Supplies, Needs and Prices – with Southern Trudeau Steve Harper

South Trint CEO Steve Harper Coir said growing media company is renovating the Coco and Coir brand and launching a new product at Harmony Gardens in September.

This is where pea reduction is a big issue.

A.D. By 2020, pea-free retail sales have increased from 123,000 cubic meters to 158,000 cubic meters to 537,000 cubic meters. But pea-based sales have also increased.

Harper (formerly William Sinkler and Bordeaux Mona) said that by 2022 there will be a shortage of sand supply, especially for all Irish produce, and that he expects media prices to increase by 10 to 20 percent in competition with other industries. Alternative materials, although sufficient.

This fall, the Pea Consultative Council is set to halt retail sales in 2024. “No one agrees. We must stop using it … The only problem is the supply of raw materials.”

Another challenge for pea-free fertilizer retailers is convincing them why they pay so much to reduce vegetable production.

It was fun to talk to consumers about the general pea debate and they don’t really understand … There are definitely a percentage of consumers with environmental concerns, but most are not.
