Characteristics good water retention combined with improved porosity. For pricking out and growing on
Use for bedding plants, perennials

19%less CO2*
*Compared to segment standard with 100% peat (rec. 425), verified in accordance with ISO 14064-1 standard
GreenFibre® mediumWhite peat, moderately decomposed (0 – 25 mm)

Improved root development in TS 3 with 20% GreenFibre® (left) compared to the standard potting substrate with 10% perlite (right)

Practical findings:

  • Very even  plant growth 
  • Superior root growth due to lower risk of waterlogging in the root zone
  • Easier irrigation management, very fast rewetting
  • No ‚dry edge‘-effect on tables
  • With a normal nitrogen-based liquid feeding scheme in line with common practice, no special feeding is required
  • Also ideal also in combination with controlled release fertiliser
  • Reduced substrate weight allows higher truck loading volumes

Practical findings:

  • Universal bedding mix for small pots
  • Ideal for a wide range of bedding crops as well as perennial plants
  • Fast development of active fibre roots
  • No shrinkage during cultivation
  • Fast drainage following irrigation or precipitation
  • Substrate surface dries off faster and prevents growth of algae
  • Easy rewetting supports a dry-cultivation approach for compact plants
  • Reduced substrate weight allows higher truck loading volumes

TerrAktiv®GreenFibre® mediumFrozen through black peatWhite peat (0 – 25 mm)

Practical findings:

  • Excellent results for a wide range of bedding plants as well as perennials
  • Has become the standard substrate for large nurseries in the south of Germany
  • Proven as a perfect substrate recipe for perennials
  • Bedding crops grow slightly more compact, which reduces the need for growth regulator
  • TerrAktiv® generates high microbial activity, which leads to suppressive effects and stimulation of plant growth
  • Use of 50% alternative constituents can be used to reduce carbon emissions
  • Good combination of crop security with sustainability aspects
