The suitability evaluation of lignocellulosic substrate as growing media substitute
African Journal of Biotechnology
The use of peat moss (PM) as a growing media is decreasing due to high costs and environmental considerations. Therefore, diverse waste products are being used as organic amendments in certain soils before afforestation. The main objective of this work was to identify and evaluate possible substrate alternatives or amendments to peat moss. This study involves the physical and chemical characterization and growth test of lignocellulosic substrate (waste paper (WP), oakwood sawdust, hinoki wooddoi:10.5897/ajb2012.2963 fatcat:dcba46kfpzchjnv7anaqe2bt44
