Planting Bags in Kenya: Growing with Grow Bags


Planting bags in Kenya
 
 
Planting bags in Kenya have been around since the 1970 and have come a long way since their inception. 
They have been found to be useful in commercial and agricultural applications, providing a great alternative to traditional plastic pots.
 In this article, we will explore the various benefits of using planting bags to grow crops in Kenya.
 
Benefits of Using Planting Bags
  1. Good Drainage and Root Aeration- Planting bags are weaved from breathable fabric, similar to a reusable grocery bag. This fabric allows for superior drainage and good root aeration, which makes them an ideal option for growing crops. The bags are well-aerated and have superior drainage over traditional plastic pots. This helps to prevent root rot and other related issues.

  2. Healthy Plant Roots Root bounding, where roots grow in circles around the pot, is a common problem with traditional plastic pots. With planting bags, this issue is eliminated. When the roots reach the wall of the bag, they outgrow it and get burnt off. This causes the plant to produce new healthy roots that branch off the original ones.

  3. Temperature Control -During hot weather, the woven fabric bags regulate temperature due to their breathable quality. Excess heat can escape from the sides of the bag. In the cold seasons, the fabric will keep the plant warmer, and in hot seasons, the fabric will cool the plant.

  4. Versatility- Planting bags come in various heights and widths, making them versatile enough to accommodate any size plant. This depends on the type of crop planted and the purpose for planting. For example, seedlings for transplanting and crops like pepper will require small bags, while leafy vegetables such as spinach will require big bags. The bags vary between 4 to 40 cubic liters. They are very adaptable and can easily be arranged or re-arranged as needed.

  5. Easy Storage -Planting bags take up less space when not in use and can be stored by simply folding them up and putting them away until needed. This occupies very minimal space and enables them to be reused.

  6. Environmental Friendly- The durability and reusable nature of planting bags make them environmentally friendly. They are weaved from thick breathable fabric, which allows for multiple uses, unlike traditional plastic pots that are discarded after use.

  7. Water Efficiency -The superior aeration and drainage inherent to the fabric bags make them highly efficient in water usage. By installing a drip watering system, the planting bags will get a constant moisture supply, which will prevent over watering, which leads to mould and fungus, and under-watering, which causes the plants to dry out.

planting bags are an excellent option for farmers with small parcels of land and those in dry areas. 

They require little space and minimum labor to use, and the output per unit area is generally high. 

By using planting bags, crops develop a good root structure at an early age, and the bags can be easily moved from one location to another, making them highly versatile. 

They are also environmentally friendly and highly efficient in water usage.
