White Milled Peat
White milled peat – peat crumbles of different sizes and forms which are extracted by using the peat milling method. The weighted average diameter of the milled peat varies from 5-6 to 26-60 mm. Milled peat contains plant fibres, which greatly improve the water and air circulation in the soil. Milled peat contains such nutrients as humic acids (which specifically encourage active growth of the plants) and special elements – nitrogen, phosphorus, ferrum, potassium, calcium, magnesium. Milled peat is extracted by using the milling method, meaning removing the top layer of 11-20 mm from the peat field. To encourage drying of the peat it is garnetted. Afterwards the peat is collected by collecting it into special tanks. Milled peat is very popular as a fertilizer and is actively used in agriculture.
