The extracted peat-sapropel mixture (substrate) is formed into bunches for natural drying, after which it can be used for the preparation of ground mixtures designed for growing in forestry farms of Belarus planting material of shrubs and trees, including seedlings of conifers.
In the period from August 2020 to December 2022, State Research Institution "Forest Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus"
conducted researches on the technology of obtaining and applying peat-sapropel substrate for growing forest planting material. The results of the research showed high efficiency of the mixture application.
The research was headed by Dr. of Agricultural Sciences, Associate Professor, Professor Vladimir Vasilievich Kopytkov
. With his direct participation TU BY 400070994.009-2022
"Organomineral substrate "Fertiriz" for growing seedlings of forest species" was developed and registered.Read more about the research work in the article "Research on the technology of using peat-sapropel substrate for growing forest planting material".
