Sphagnum is an important ‘commodity’ raw material with many uses. Used as a growing substrate for niche crops, such as Orchids, it also has interesting current and historical pharmaceutical and filtration applications. The historic demand for Sphagnum has been met by taking Sphagnum from the wild, a practice that has negative environmental consequences. Sustainable production of fresh Sphagnum, therefore could enable governments to meet peat reduction targets, satisfy environmental groups and provide growers with a serious alternative to environmentally unsustainable Peat.
