    To promote the growth of plants, many people use chemical based fertilizers in their garden. But it is always beneficial to use organic materials to grow the plants and it is useful for maintaining the fertility of soil.

    depends how small the island is that coir comes from .... Sri-Lankan stuff was a bit salty at first ..
    but I think processing plants have been edstablished far from the sea elsewhere now .

    my goodness! i couldn't understand any small island nation exporting anything organic.

    if i were a small island nation i'd be out scrounging organic matter from the gyres, mixing it with fish/shellfish waste, humanure and some portion i could make into char. that'd be some good stuff in a few years...
