The use of bark waste as a substrate in horticulture

, : The use of bark waste as a substrate in horticulture. Meedelingen van de Faculteit Landbouwwetenschappen, Rijksuniversiteit Gent 8(4): 2003-2012

Good results were obtained with bark waste when 20-40% of the particles were below 0.8 mm and 10-20% of the particle sizes were above 6.4 mm. The addition of 2% N in the form of NH4NO3 was required to overcome N deficiency and allow satisfactory decomposition of the bark. No addition of lime or micronutrients was needed. Phytotoxic effects were greatest with ash, maple, cottonwood and walnut, and lowest with sycamore.
