Chemical and physical properties of re-used peat for tomato


Acta Horticulturae (126): 45-50
Chemical and physical properties of re-used peat for tomato
Normal yields were obtained when tomatoes were grown in peat bags re-used 3 times without sterilization. Use of a complete nutrient solution resulted in increased P and B concentrations in the medium, therefore lower P and B levels are recommended in nutrient solutions for re-used than for new peat. The pH varied with the electrical conductivity.
