Peatland Planting Management
Peat refers to a dark brown soil-like substance that was formed by the accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic matter, commonly found in peatland or wetland areas.
In our effort to achieve higher yield in mineral soil and peat soil areas, effective agronomic approaches have been identified and are being implemented in our estates. This includes better fertilizer application techniques to enhance nutrient uptake as well as better soil management to reduce surface run-off and leaching losses.
The determination by the management team to adopt and implement a new approach in water management strategy has resulted in a sterling yield improvement, recorded by several of our estates with planting on peat land.
