Experiments on formulation of peat modules using native New Zealand peat


Acta Horticulturae (82): 179-190
Experiments on formulation of peat modules using native New Zealand peat
Based on results of experiments with 2 tomato cvs, modules containing 40 to 50 litres of peat for growing 4 tomato plants each are recommended, with the following base fertilizers: 10 kg dolomite lime, 0.47 kg calcium nitrate, 1.27 kg potassium nitrate, 4 kg serpentine superphosphate, 0.77 kg magnesium sulphate, 14 g borax, 25 g copper sulphate, 41 g iron sulphate, 41 g iron chelate, 17 g manganese sulphate, 17 g zinc sulphate and 3 g sodium molybdate/m3 of peat.
