Pacific Organics is the only supplier of a truly defined product. The key elements requiring definition for the nursery market include both physical and chemical properties (pH and soluble salts). The key physical properties include particle size gradation, bulk density, total porosity, (% of air), air space (% of air after water saturation and drainage), container capacity (% of water after water saturation and drainage), and moisture content (% water after saturation). We test every load to ensure specifications are met every time.
Turning of pine bark windrows ensures sufficient oxygen and water is available throughout the material.
Anaerobic bark impairs wetability and creates low pH, excessive soluble salts, and potential phytotoxic effects. It is therefore vital to turn windrows to eliminate ‘bad batches’ and ensure consistent quality.
Unpredictability comes in 2 flavors – unstable products with rapidly-changing characteristics, and variations from batch to batch. This makes it hard to maintain optimal growing conditions, manage irrigation and fertilizing programs, or predict yields and growth times.
Combating unpredictability is why the focus at Pacific Organics is on producing a stable, well-defined product you know will always deliver high performance. To achieve this we have assembled the right facilities, processes, and knowledgeable team.
