Vegetable seedling cultivation in peat and bark substrates

Vegetable seedling cultivation in peat and bark substrates

Bulletin Vyzkumny a Slechtitelsky Ustav Zelinarsky Olomouc1982; (25/26): 129-147

When lettuce, cauliflower and kohlrabi seedlings were grown in 10 different loam, peat, loam + peat or loam + composted spruce bark substrates, bark proved a good substitute for peat. Seedling growth was best in peat substrate containing 60-80% peat or in bark substrate containing 50-75% bark. Growth was poorest in 100% loam.
