The Facts on the Sustainability of Peat
As consumers and suppliers become more climate-conscious, there have been questions about the long-term viability and sustainability of the harvesting and use of sphagnum peat moss, which has long been an important component of soilless media because of its fibrous structure, water-holding capacity and low nutrient content.

Because it’s a natural product, growers often ask about how peat is harvested and processed, and about its availability, both short-term and long-term.

In this webinar, Susan Parent of Premier Tech will explain all the details of today’s sphagnum peat moss, including how harvest sites are restored, and the sustainability and outlook of this valuable resource for future generations of growers and gardeners.

With more than 35 years at Premier Tech, Susan has been part of the Innovation team in developing active ingredients for horticulture plants. She has a deep knowledge microbiology, and for the last 10 years she has been part of Premier Tech's Grower Services team, supporting greenhouse growers and working with them to improve the quality of their crops. Susan has many years of knowledge and experience of the peat moss industry in Canada, including sphagnum peat moss harvesting, processing, and the restoration of valuable peat bog resources.
