What is MOIS® and How Does it Work?

MOIS is a coconut-based, homogenous mulch material comprised of millions of capillary micro-sponges. It can hold up to seven times its weight in water and is 100% organic, which makes it extremely beneficial in agricultural and turf applications.

Since MOIS is primarily made from the fruit of the coconut husk, it is naturally rich in ingredients, and will hold and release nutrients in soil over extended periods of time without re-watering. MOIS is also fully biodegradable, enriching the soil much like peat or mulch, while retaining water.

Water Conservation

MOIS fibers are among the most absorbent of mulching mediums, holding enough water to cut water application by up to 50% or more. The finer material forms a blanket under the grass canopy and regulates soil temperature while remaining porous for water and air movement.

100% Organic

MOIS fiber is made exclusively from organic coconuts, making it an all-natural, sustainable alternative to other effective methods of mulching, like peat moss. As it degrades, it adds nutrients and organic matter to the soil, creating a long-term fix to the soil’s natural water holding capabilities.

The MOIS® Process

MOIS is made from 100% pure organic coconuts, ground into ultra fine pieces. These are taken from the richest part of the coconut husk, because they contain the most sponge-like pores, nutrients and electrolytes. Once extracted, we put the organic mix through a rigorous triple-wash process, achieving perfect PH and EC levels. This makes MOIS the premier water retention and green-feeding product.

    Absolutely. Nurseries and landscapers can combine ordinary soil with MOIS to reap the benefits of our product’s moisture retaining and growth accelerating properties. MOIS benefits potted plants too!

  • How Much Water Can I Expect to Save?

    If you apply MOIS at a 100% inclusion rate, you can expect to reduce watering by up to 50%. That means you only need to use half as much water to get the desired effect of normal watering.
