Cocochips are made from the outer husk of coconut palms. They are typically produced by shredding and drying the husks, then sifting them to remove any dirt or debris. Coco chips are often used as a soil amendment or growing medium in horticulture, due to their high water-holding capacity and ability to improve soil structure. They can also be used as a mulch or ground cover in landscaping, as they help to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
