Field and greenhouse vegetable production on peat and brown coal dust

Acta Horticulturae (26): 51-60

Field and greenhouse vegetable production on peat and brown coal dust

Fertilizer trials were carried out from 1968 to 1970 with direct-sown and transplanted onions, cabbages and carrots grown in highly decomposed peat soil to which minerals and trace elements were added. Onions gave the highest yields, about 600 q/ha, with high P rates and Mo; cabbage gave high yields, about 1000 q/ha, with high P, and carrots yielded about 800 q/ha with all fertilizer rates.

Tomatoes in PVC rings or polyethylene sacks grew and yielded as well in pine bark compost as in sphagnum peat, but yields were lower when plants were grown on brown coal. All substrates received a complete fertilizer and liquid feeding. If the rin...

The rings were placed on the soil or on a 15 cm thick layer of each of the substrates. The total yi...

Laboratory experiments were performed on a peat, a brown coal, and a subbituminous coal using closed-system pyrolysis. The samples were heated isothermally for 48 h from 150 to 500 degrees C. All three samples had similar pathways of thermal evolu...

Up to 150 t/ha of hard coal slag, containing 4% CaO and 2% MgO, increased soil pH, available K...
