Compost as peat substitute
Both PCS and Delphy started some trials for peat substituting in containers and open field cultivation of rootstocks. Peat has some specific characteristics, like low pH and a specific bulk density. That is why peat resulted in optimal rooting in containers and root stocks. Now it is the challenge to find a combination of substrates, resulting in the same rooting and plant growth.
End of 2022, PCS and Delphy showed interested growers the first results of the trials. Next months more information can be found on the website.
