In part 1 the efficiency of the existing legal provisions concerning manure production and manure use is investigated. To what extent do they take into account the expected climate change? Part 2 considers the fractionated fertilization of potatoes and maize.
Main research questionBASTA envisages producing biochar from residual biomass resulting in an economically valuable and sustainable end product for applications in (1) manure and biomass processing; (2) growing media; and (3) open fields.
Pot chrysanthemums grown on peat-poor substrate and fertilized in the field with local management residues grow as well or even better than pot chrysanthemums grown on peat-rich substrate and fertilized with farmyard manure.
