• Sphagnum farming Georgia [DE]

Projects & best practice examples

At the University of Greifswald several research projects are focusing on the sustainable use of degraded peatland sites. The projects aim for the replacement of destructive forms of land use on peat soils such as maize cultivation, grassland use and peat mining with peat conservation and sustainable cultivation of adapted plants under wet conditions.

Further projects investigate fundamental traits as hydrological, biological or geochemical charateristics of wet and drained peat soils.
