FNR workshops: Off the peat path

On behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), the Agency of Renewable Resources (FNR) invites you to two online workshops “Off the peat path - Alternative substrates for mushroom cultivation” on 4th April 2023 and “Off the peat path - Wood fibres as an alternative to peat in substrateson25th April 2023.

The two workshops are follow-up events to the "Off the peat path - Suitability and availability of alternative substrates for peat use in European horticulture" workshop held on 22 November 2022. The events will focus on peat reduced mushroom cultivation and wood fibres as an alternative to peat. Scientists from Europe will present their research results. Moreover, participants will have the opportunity to contribute by partaking in the discussion.

With these events, we want to continue to support knowledge exchange and networking of European researchers in the field of peat use reduction. In this spirit, we would be pleased to welcome you at our online workshops in April!
