Baltic peat moss substrates for professionals. Produced in Latvia
White peat for high air capacity. Black peat (frozen through) for good water retention. Sod (block) peat for structural stability.
Baltic peat and peat bogs
Peat is formed in the process of natural decay. It is an incomplete decomposition of bog plants, under over current moisture and incomplete supply of oxygen. High bog peat is made up of herbaceous plants, mainly of different mosses. Approximately 95% of moss’s peat volume and pores. The tiny pores are filled with water, but rough – the air, so the peat roots provide ideal water and air treatment. The age of the peat deposits is 6-12 thousand years, and it turns out that 1 mm of the current peat layer was formed during the year. Peat is formed under anaerobic conditions and is sterile.
Growing media quality issue
Areapeat pay more and more focus on providing high-quality substrates with value-added benefits. Many essential advantages are its uniformity, established quality, range of a different kind of raw material. Professional growers are looking for high-quality substrates that are steerable and uniform. As consumers become more aware of the need for sustainable production methods, growers will become more concerned about having substrate solutions in place at the end of the crop cycle.
Humus – the basis of soil fertility
It is formed by the decomposition of organic matter. Humus contributes to the formation of soil structure, increases water permeability in clay soils, improves aeration and facilitates soil treatment, as well as reduces soil density and creates favorable conditions for root growth. Organic matter increases the soil’s buffering capacity, especially in sandy soils, making them more resistant to changes in pH. At the same time, it also increases the microbial activity in the soil and promotes the nitrification process.
