The exhibition was inaugurated by the Coir Board chairman, Prof G. Balachandran.

The 11-day sales exhibition of handicrafts, geo-textiles, pith and wood, all made of coir will be on display till 30 November. Items on display at the exhibition include uniquely crafted handicrafts such as coir bags, UV-resistant toys, ornaments and similar gift articles as well.

Coir Board's Pavillion, at the ongoing India International Trade Fair in Delhi, is showcasing a technology for bioconversion of coir pith into organic manure. It is a perfect option for potted plants and kitchen garden; and is especially ideal for growing flowers like rose, orchids, and anthuriums besides vegetables such as tomato and cucumber.

Coir pith in eco-friendly containers is put up for sale at Pragati Maidan as part of the India International Trade Fair and will be on display also at Dilli Haat and Chetanalaya later this week. Coir pith, a byproduct of industries that use coconuts, is finding itself remodelled virtually as soil which is conditioned for plants to grow. That is courtesy Coir Board’s invention of a technology for bioconversion of coir pith into organic manure.

WHEN: On till 30 November
WHERE: Dilli Haat
