Micropropagation Services: Solving The Peatland Crisis Through Sphagnum Farming – The Green Alternative to Peat
Beadamoss® will establish field-grown Sphagnum in partnership with Wrights Farm in Lancashire. Melcourt will produce the end product, combining Sphagnum with other media to produce a commercial product mix for different markets. The project will also evaluate the commercial and environmental sustainability of the approach.
The project will scale up the production of Sphagnum Farming to produce sustainable growing media to replace peat and support the English horticulture sector, whilst also supporting lowland peat farmers with this sustainable, profitable Sphagnum crop for their land. The project will create a commercially sustainable demonstration farm and overcome identified barriers throughout the supply chain.
The trials for this project will be undertaken at Wrights Farm in Lancashire. Beadamoss are based in East Leake, LE12 6NZ
