The use of substrates based on black peat from Viareggio for the growth of vegetable seedlings in nurseries

The use of substrates based on black peat from Viareggio for the growth of vegetable seedlings in nurseries

Colture Protette 14(4): 64-67

Tomatoes Pantano, cucumber Spring F1 and lettuce Ravel were grown in plastic pots containing 100% Viareggio black peat (decomposition factor of H10 on the van Post scale), 100% sandy-loam or various mixtures of the two. The higher the proportion of peat in the mixture, the poorer was the growth of all 3 species; this was attributed to the high salinity of the peat (conductivity 4.7 mmhos/cm).
