Planting with Cocoons in Alcacer do Sal

Last month, the Volterra team visited a cork oak farm in Alcacer do Sal in the Alentejo region of Portugal. The owners of the more than 500ha farm were very interested in planting using Cocoons to densify the more bare areas of the farm with cork oaks and other Mediterranean species.

The COCOON consists of cellulose and recycled, biodegradable pulp based on cardboard residues to ensure impermeability during the first survival period. Apart from delivering 100 cocoons to them, together with the farm staff, we planted a few cork oaks to show them how to plant with this innovative tool.

We hope they will thrive!
