International Agricultural Consultant, Dr. Hugh Poole, has joined leading coir processor and organic substrate manufacturer, Fibre Dust LLC.

Poole has worked for a variety of agricultural firms over the years, including Speedling, Syngenta and SunGro Horticulture, but it is his 15 year working relationship with Fibre Dust President Sam Ahilan that tempted him out of retirement.

“We welcome the opportunity have Dr Hugh Poole on board with Fibredust LLC , a fast growing coir company with multiple sites in India and Srilanka” said Sam Ahilan, president of Fibredust LLC. Having worked with Dr Poole for last 15 years, his knowledge can certainly benefit many of our existing and new customers. He will play a vital role on “ Quality Assurance, providing Grower Solutions and new product development”. He will visit our manufacturing sites in India and Srilanka to provide technical assistance to our operational and quality control teams on a regular basis.


If you are considering a change to coir in your growing operation, we offer a great package to assure  a great start.  Purchase a container for testing purposes and for a small additional fee we’ll arrange for  Dr Poole to supervise your test.  It’s a win-win situation.
