Growth of nursery crops in peat-reduced and in peat-free substrates

Growth of nursery crops in peat-reduced and in peat-free substrates

Acta Horticulturae (644): 103-106

From 1993 to 1997, experiments with increasing amounts of wood fibre in a peat substrate were carried out. The test plants were Thuja occidentalis 'Aureospicata', Prunus laurocerasus 'Otto Luyken', T. occidentalis 'Smaragd' and Lonicera nitida 'Maigrun'. The substrates differed in peat:wood ratios (i.e. 100:0, 75:25, 50:50, 25:75 and 0:100 %, v/v). In 1999 and 2000, experiments were carried out with commercially available peat-reduced and peat-free substrates.
