Growing Trial Results


CowPots break down faster than other biodegradable seed starting pots.

Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station compared CowPots to rice hull, Jiffy and Fertil pots. After 3 months of growing, less than 20% of the CowPot was still intact while the other ‘biodegradable’ pots remained with more than 80% intact.

Testimonials #theproofisinthepoo

I did use the 4" standard pots for our tomatoes and they were received very well by customers! People were excited to not have the plastic, have something that actual would break down and provide a good charge in the pot wall. Our personal plantings again showed that cowpots disintegrated in our raised bed. I look forward to using them again next year!
Suzi GBowensville Farm & Nursery
My perennials in your Cow Pots have been a huge hit at our Farmer's Markets this year! People totally love how easy they are and how eco-friendly they are. I am required to sell Proven Winners in their branded plastic pots and people actually pass them by in favor of other varieties because they are in Cow Pots!

Thanks for the great product, you can see the difference in the field by using Cow-pots for all my transplants. We so often get behind on the TP schedule that the CowPots provide the extra buffer so the plants don't suffer for my floundering to stay on schedule!
Aaron LichtenbergWinnipesaukee Woods Farm, NH
I have bought them for my own production (small grower for landscape clients and myself) and I recommend them to everyone. They don't break apart on the bench which is such a huge deal with biodegradable pots. I use these exclusively and will continue to do so. So really, thanks for making such a great product!
