Present and future technologies for substrate utilization in horticulture


, : Present and future technologies for substrate utilization in horticulture. Comptes Rendus de l' Academie d' Agriculture de France 79(3): 97-106

The topic is reviewed under the following main headings: (1) current tendencies, including the technological advances that have permitted the use of soilless culture, notably combined irrigation and fertilization and slow-release fertilizers, and the adaptation of substrates to technical and cultural conditions; and (2) constraints and perspectives, including standardization of the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the substrates, and the problem of disposal of substrates after use. In future, it will be important to replace peat with substrates from renewable sources, to reduce inputs and to minimize pollution.
