FNR workshop: Off the peat path - Suitability and availability of alternative substrates for peat use in European horticulture

On behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), the Agency of Renewable Resources (FNR) invites you to the online workshop "Off the peat path - Suitability and availability of alternative substrates for peat use in European horticulture" on 22 November 2022.

The event will focus primarily on the discussion of peat reduction in horticulture - specifically the suitability and availability of alternative substrates in Europe. Researchers from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, and Norway will present their current results in this field. In addition to the presentations, a panel discussion on "The future of peat-free growing media in Europe" will further stimulate scientific exchange.

With this event, we want to strengthen the exchange and networking of European researchers in the field of peat mitigation. In this spirit, we would be pleased to welcome you at our online workshop on 22 November 2022!
