The low profitability of draining and fertilizing sparsely tree covered ombrotrophic bogs for forestry purposes a case study


Suo (Helsinki) 34(4-5): 93-97
The low profitability of draining and fertilizing sparsely tree covered ombrotrophic bogs for forestry purposes a case study
The ombrotrophic raised bog Laaviosuo at Lammi, southern Finland, was studied to access the economics of draining and fertilizing sparsely tree covered bogs. Input and output were calculated using both real short-term values and hypothetical long-term values. Profitability was low in both cases. Amelioration of this kind of bog may be considered an uneconomic proposition.
