100% renewable patented wood fiber
Safe and reliable production
HORTIFIBRE® is a professional process; wood fiber is manufactured via a patented thermo-mechanical process which consists in crushing coniferous wood chips sourced from a sawmill.
It is produced in 4 factories in Europe.
Environmentally-friendly and economical
HORTIFIBRE® is a renewable raw material which makes use of a by-product of the wood industry, sourced from sustainably-managed forests. This wood fiber is 100% natural as it contains no chemical or material additives.
HORTIFIBRE® is biodegradable. The wood fiber degrades after use, leaving no residue. Itslow weight reduces transport costs.
Advantages for professional growers
Aeration: The high porosity of HORTIFIBRE® LD improves aeration of the substrate.
Water retention: A mixture of 50% HORTIFIBRE® LD + 50% blonde peat or coco coir offer the same water-retention capacity as peat.
Easy re-wetting: HORTIFIBRE® is naturally hydrophilic.
Root development: Improved drainage and water retention encourages fast and healthy plant growth.
Pressed and dried to reduce transport costs (economic advantage)
High porosity for improved root development (agronomic advantage)
Sustainable, renewable and natural (environmental advantage)
Patented manufacturing technology
High-temperature defibrating process for safe fibers of consistent quality
