Using Fiber Pots Proves Successful in Growing Operations


As environmentally conscious consumers demand more sustainable options in all walks of life, growers see using fiber pots as an opportunity to bring their inventory full circle by marketing plants grown in sustainable, molded pulp growing containers.

It’s a unique differentiator in a competitive industry, but it’s not without its share of concerns.

When it comes to using fiber pots, the question of real-world results during typical growing cycles is often asked by growers using traditional plastic containers in their operations.

Concerns surrounding the applicability of using fiber pots are legitimate and critical for growers across North America, for altering the growing medium could not only impact crop yields but ultimately profits as well.

HC, with a full line of fiber pots, set out to alleviate these concerns with growing trials conducted throughout the United States. Here’s what we discovered.
